Install SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit problem.

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :


I am installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition 64bit to Windows Server 2008 R2 standard (64bit) on VMware Virtual Machine.

The OS version is 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601. Processor value shows "Interl(R) Xeon(R) CPU.

On the "Installation Rules" page, it shows the status of "64-bit processor" and "64-bit operating system" are  is "Not applicable". Click the link to see details, it shows "... rule is not applicable based on your system configuration or selections.".

I have checked the forums, and see someone asked the same question but the answer was to ignore it. The installation was completed, but I can see both 32bit and 64bit folders (\Program Files (x86) and \Program Files) have files installed on "Microsoft SQL Server". So, I don't know it is exatly 64bit or mixed with 32bit and 64bit.

Is there anything wrong on my server's setting?

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

Sharepoint 2003 + Windows Terminal Server 2008 + Office 2007 problem?

Hi, We have a customer where some users runs Windows Terminal Server 2008 with Office 2007. They open documents from a Sharepoint 2003 site. When they open an excel sheet they get a button in the document which says "Server workbook: Click edit workbook to edit this workbook" and there is a button: "edit workbook" The users clicks "edit workbook" but get an error message saying there is no connection to the server.  They are able to edit the document, but not save it back to the sharepoint site. Most other users work on their local computer with Office 2003. Here, everything works fine and there are no button/message stating its a server workbook.   Is this caused due to some compatability issues between Sharepoint 2003 and Office 2007?   Best regards, Thomas Hansen ErgoGroup AS

SQL*Server 2008 SP1 applied but still tries to download and install from Windows Update

I had previously posted this on the windows update forum and was advised here was more appropriate. I have installed SQL*Server Express 2008 on laptop with windows7 and appled the SP1 update. This shows as applied correctly when looking at programs/updates from control panel, update logs. The management console confirms version 10.1.2531 is running. Each time I use windows update  the service pack is listed as needing download / install - the same KB968369 is given as the reference. I have run this a couple of times but the update is shown as outstanding each time. Any ideas how to resolve this? Thanks Colin

Problem consuming 32bit WCF service which references a native Dll in a 64 bit OS(Windows Server 2008

I have some 32bit Dlls which i want to use it in 64bit OS as i do not have a source code of this to recompile it for 64 bit OS. I have created a x86(32 Bit) WCF service which calls these Dlls and hosted it as a Windows Service on a x64(64 Bit) machine using Windows Server 2008. I have created one more x64 client which calls a function in the WCF which in turn calls a function from the 32 bit native Dll. Whenever i try calling this WCF from the client I get an error as given below.Can anybody please guide as to where I am going wrong and what is needed to solve this issue.

OPENROWSET Problem with FoxPro and SQL Server 2008 on Windows 2008 R2

I currently have stored procedures running in SQL2K on a Win2K3R2 that gather data from our over 1500 free-table Foxpro databases. The stored procedures use MSDASQL and the VFP ODBC driver. This has been working well since at least 2005. I am now in a situation where I need to port the SQL databases over to SQL2K8 on Win2K8R2. I have a 32-bit SQL instance running so that I can still use the Foxpro drivers. I have installed the VFPODBC and the VFP OLE DB drivers and configured the Providers in the SQL instance to "Allow Inprocess" and not "Disallow adhoc access", and all those wonderful things, I have it to the point where when logged on locally to the SQL2K8 I can run either one of these statements below successfully:  SELECT number FROM OPENROWSET('MSDASQL', 'Driver=Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver;SourceDB=\\RMFS\FOXPRO\CLIENT1\CLIENTDB;SourceType=DBF', 'SELECT number FROM ARCUSTMR') or  SELECT number FROM OPENROWSET('VFPOLEDB', '\\RMFS\FOXPRO\CLIENT1\CLIENTDB'; ' '; ' ', 'SELECT number FROM ARCUSTMR') However, if I try to run the same query from my PC (and a Domain Admin) I get the following errors respectively: OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "(null)" returned message "[Microsoft][ODBC Visual FoxPro Driver]File 'arcustmr.dbf' does not exist.".

Tried everything, cannot install SQL Server 2008 Developer on Windows 7 Professional

I have a legal, purchased copy of Windows 7 on my X86 computer. I have downloaded through my university a copy of SQL Server 2008 (through MSDNAA). I have tried every single post for four days to no avail to get this installed, and it is crucial for my SQL class (obviously).

Everything I do leads to ".NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installation failed. .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 must be installed."
To my understanding, .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 is installed by default in Windows 7. This is confirmed by the lack of installer on Microsoft websites for Windows 7, the ability to install other software such as Google Chrome that requires .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, and the availability of .NET Framework 3.5.1 in the Windows Programs and Features.

I have tried installing SQL Server 2008 SP1, which installed successfully, as recommended by Microsoft and then running the setup program using the /PCUSource=c:\SP1 method to have it recognize the SP1, to no avail.

I made sure that all features of .NET Framework 3.5.1 were enabled in Windows Programs and Features.

Windows 7 is completely up to date.

I have tried installing Visual Studio 2008 (which successfully installed), but SQL Server would not install afterwards.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Installation Problem


Good evening!

I downloaded Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition (x86 and x64) from MSDNAA (i study computer science) and also  Windows 7 Professional (x86). I installed Windows 7 and i tried to install SQL Server but i receive the "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installation has failed. SQL Server 2008 Setup requires .NET Framework 3.5 to be installed." error. I tried installing .NET Framework but it doesn't work because it's installed by default with Windows 7 (i checked the "Turn Windows features on or off" page and the "Microsoft .NET framework 3.5.1" checkbox is checked). I understand that this means .NET framework 3.5 SP1 is also installed so i shouldn't have any errors.

Can anyone help me with this installation problem?

Thank you!

Problem with Impersonation on Windows 2008 Server x64

Existing .net application that runs w/out issue on 2003 x32 and x64 Terminal Services is failing on 2008 x64 with 'Cannot Create ActiveX Component' error.

Application is compiled as x86.

The functionality is to access an email within a PST file. Utilizes Redemption 4.5 COM object for PST access.

Pseudo code:

Impersonate Domain Admin
'create the COM object (.net interop is installed
RDOSession = CType(CreateObject("Redemption.RDOSession"), Redemption.RDOSession) 
'logon to the mailbox of impersonated user
RDOSession.LogonExchangeMailbox("UserID@domain.com", "mail.mydomain.com")
'add the requested PST
RDOPST = RDOSession.Stores.AddPSTStore(PSTFullName)
Canx impersonation

If I do not invoke the impersonation method, but 'Run As Administrator' or a user with sufficient rights to the PST, the code works on 2008.
If the impersonation method is invoked, the CreateObject fails with 'Cannote Create ActiveX Component' (no inner message).  Even if I 'Run As Administrator' with the impersonation invoked, it still fails with the same error.

If I pass the username/password for the current user (which also has domain admin rights) to the Impersonation method- it works. Any other domain admin account other than the current user,

How To Install .NET Assembly Into GAC On Windows Server 2008

Hi there.

I have a .NET 2.0 assembly which has been used in many SharePoint projects, running on W2K3 boxes, which I'm having trouble installing on a W2K8 box. Normally, on a W2K3 box, I can get away with dragging the assembly into the C:\Windows\Assembly folder and it will be installed, no problem. However, I see that things are a bit different in W2K8!

If I try to drag the assembly into the GAC, I get an error message indicating that I can't do that. Ok, so I ran Windows Explorer with 'Run As Administrator', but that made no difference.

I looked for .Net Configuration in Control Panel, but that is not there.

As a last resort I did a 'dir gacutil.exe /a/s/p' in a command prompt, but that returned nothing. There is no Visual Studio installed on the W2K8 box, thus I assume that's the reason for no gacutil.exe.

So my questions is, what is the preferred method of installing an assembly into the GAC in W2K8? Has anyone else had the same problem?
