SQL Server Reporting Services not able to install on Windows Vista Home Premium


Recently I had a weird problem while trying to install SQL Server Reporting Service in my local PC. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and I wanted to configure SSRS in my PC. During the installation, the setup wizard listed all the services that we want to install and I found that only Reporting Server checkbox option was disabled and I wondered why??? I thought it may be becuase of some installation problem and tried again and its useless... I googled lot of sites for 3 days and finally found that due to some IIS issues, it is not possible to install Reporting Server in Vista Home Premium version. Reporting Server needs some specific IIS features to be installed in the machine.

But unfortunately those features are not available for Home Premium users which in term restricts users not to install reporting server in our PCs... Also, Microsoft has accepted it as an issue and its not possible to get it install in Home Premium...just wanted to share and might be useful for someone like me.

SQL Server 2005 Standard edition install fails; An instance with the same name.../


Good Morning

I am trying to install SQL Server 2005 onto Windows Server 2003 Small Business Edition. Previously SQL Server 2000 from the SBE disk was installed, automatic updates are enabled.

I have selected the default instance and everything I try results in the error:

An instance with the same name is already installed on this computer. To proceed with SQL Server Setup, provide a unique instance name.

Log file says;

SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition on Vista Home Premium??



I could not install  SQL Server 2005 Developer edition on my notebook with os Vista Home Premium. I know about the SP2 thing...but before coming that point, I can not either install the SQL Server 2005...

When installing,when the database services point comes it gives an error about user thing...and then installation starts to rollback...


I check the IIS configuration from the net...And see that while activating IIS there is no option for Windows Auth. in Home Premium in Control Panel>Program...>Windows Programs.....etc....


SO ON VISTA HOME PREMIUM is SQL SERVER 2005 Dev. Edition can be installed or not?

Silent install of SQL Server 2005 fails when SQL Server 2008 is installed


We currently install SQL Server 2005 Express silently during our installation, using the following switches


We also attach a 2005-created database immediately after using the following command line (^ is a path concat operator in Installshield):

sqlcmd.exe -S .\\SQLEXPRESS -E -i \"" + svConfigPath ^ "SetupUapDB.sql\" -vmdfpath=\"" + svConfigPath ^ "UapCfg.mdf\" -vldfpath=\"" + svConfigPath ^ "UapCfg_log.ldf\" -o \"" + svConfigPath ^ "SqlCreateDB.txt\" -e

Note that we do not specify an instance name.  We ran into a situation where someone had installed SQL Server 2008 on a box using a default instance name and our install then failed.  I am considering 2 possible fixes, and have questions for both.

Fix #1: Specify an instance name.  Ideally this would install SQL Server 2005 Express side by side with SQL Server 2008, create a unique instance name and we'd be good to go right?  If yes, what is the accepted convention for specifying instance names?

Fix #2: Not sure if this is possible.  Can we detect if SQL Server 2008 is on the box, and if yes, apply our 2005 database to it instead?  In this case (tell me

sql server 2005 install on SBS2003 fails due to registry key permissions

I am posting this to hopefully help someone else that encounters the same issue in the future...

Server:  SBS 2003 Premium, with exchange and with all service packs/patches applied.
Server-name: NEWSERVER
Server migrated from: OLDSERVER
Important notes:
This server was migrated from another SBS 2003 on different HW following the instructions provided by microsoft.
The oldserver had exchange and sql 2005 installed on it.
The new server has Office Accounting 2005 installed, but I don't think that matters...

I am trying to install SQL 2005 from the SBS2003-R2 DVD onto the new server, and get the following error:

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Setup

SQL Server Setup failed to modify security permissions on registry key SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib for user Administrator. To proceed, verify that the account and domain running SQL Server Setup exist, that the account running SQL Server Setup has administrator privileges, and that the registry key  exists on the destination drive.

SQL Server Express R2 Database Engine fails to install on XP Home (SP3)


I have had multiple failed attempts at installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Express on an elderly but reliable machine running XP Home with SP3. 
The support files and management tools loaded OK when I de-selected the database engine.  I was installing as a user with administrator rights. 
I wanted to start the DB as a service following boot without a user logged on.

The failure appeared as a message a 'Library not registered' at stage Slp_Config_SQLEngine_ADHlpr_Cpu32.  I cancelled at this point (although in other attempts I let it run on with similar, unsuccessful results).

Other posts covering failed installation do not appear to cover the same problem.  If they do, I am afraid it is my limited understanding!

The summary log file is below and what I think are the relevant lines from the detail are given after. 

Can anyone help identify the cause and suggest what I need to do to rectify it?

Many thanks.

SQL Server 2005 fails to start after install on Server 2008 R2 SP1 64-bit


New install of Server 2008 R2 64-bit upgraded to SP1.

I have SQL Server 2005, no matter how I install it, it fails to start the main SQL Service giving me the error:

"The SQL Server service failed to start. For more information, see the SQL Server Books Online topics, "How to: View SQL Server 2005 Setup Log Files" and "Starting SQL Server Manually.""

It then rolls back just that portion of the install and completes the install. I thought the following article might be the ticket, but no matter which SQL Server 2005 SP I try this with or which method they describe (reducing processor count, etc), I get the same error: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954835/en-us

Is it SP1 on Server 2008 R2 that is the problem? I have found various articles online speaking of pretty much the same issue, but these are posted before SP1 and people seem to be able to get things working.

Any thoughts?

How do I install SQL Server 2005 JDBC driver

I'm an new bie to "SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver". I have downloaded SQL Server 2005 JDBC driver and extracted it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver\. Is the installation complete now? How can I use this driver from my application?

How do I get SQL-DMO installed on a SQL Server 2005 Express Client computer?

SQL Server 2008 R2 fails after Windows XP Pro SP3 install

We recently encountered an issue with SQL Server 2008 R2 failing to run after the upgrade from Windows XP Pro SP2 to SP3. This was tested and reproduced (with varying results) on more than one computer. Steps to reproduce this. On a Windows XP Pro machine with Service Pack 2 installed, install SQL Server 2008 R2. Next upgrade Windows to Service Pack 3. Now upon opening SSMS or trying to start the SQL server service you receive the following message: "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem". In some instances reinstalling/repairing SQL Server 2008 R2 does fix the issue.  In other cases the installer crashes and you need to use msizap to clean it up before you can reinstall.  In other cases you do not receive any errors at all. After testing in multiple virtual machines it looks like the cleaner the Windows install the more likely you are to run into this issue.  On machines with most or all windows updates (prior to SP3) installed you do not necessarily even get the failure.  On machines with just Windows XP Pro SP2 installed with no additional updates you get the failure every time. Obviously the SQL Server 2008 R2 prerequisites are installed in all cases in order to be able to install SQL server to begin with. Any help with this would be appre
