Unable to install SP3 on SQL 2005 due to Database Services language being blank

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi all,   I have an issue that requires me to upgrade to a later SP (currently on RTM), but when I try to install SP3 Database Services cannot be ticked. Upon inspection I see that its reporting "This update requires language ENU.  The language for this product instance MSSQLSERVER is . Download the upadte for langage .", when I check teh Language field to the right it is blank, other parts however are fine and can be upgraded. Can you advise please as I don't know how to manually set the language (which is reported inside SQL itself as English (United Kingdom)) and I cannot un/reinstall. Thanks, John

Unable to install SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 4 (KB2463332)



Rookie here. Using SQL for an eBay software program we have been running for two years. There were simple step by step instructions to install -- point being, I really dont understand this stuff.

Running Windows XP SP3.

Automatic Updates is trying to install the version shown in the Title of this message. It fails to install and gives me the error: SQL BPA command line has encountered a problem and needs to close.

I do not know where to access the error log. I will post if someone can tell me the correct one to find. In the following directory, C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\, there are directories for MSSQL.1, MSSQL.2 and MSSQL.3. Two of them show log directories with today's date.

Any and all help is very much appreciated.

Thank you!

SQL Server 2005: Install reporting services - which version?

Hello - I installed SQL Server 2005 as part of an SBS2008 install. I need to install reporting services, but now I'm having trouble identifying which version (X64 or X86) I'm running. Is there an easy way of figuring out which installation disk I need to insert for SQL Server 2005? Thanks, Nick.

Unable to connect to SQL Server 2005 remotly, all client protocols are blank

I have an installation of SQL 2005 and had issues connecting remotly. Looking at the client protocolols, they are all blank. I can see that TCPIP, Named Pipes, VIA, etc. are 'enabled', but where the words 'TCPIP', 'Names Pipes', etc. should be, it's just blank. I tried to install SQL 2008R hoping the Client Protocols would be corrected during the installaion, but they were not. I'm assuming the issue with the Client Protocols not showing up is a symptom of the problem. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Can't install Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services


I just installed a stand-alone SQL Server 2005 reporting services on a 64-bit Server 2008 machine without receiving any errors.  I have not configured reporting services yet, but I'd like to patch it with Service pack 3. However, when I execute Service Pack 3, it won't let me check the box for reporting services.  I've rebooted, etc.  The database is not installed on this server, just reporting services.

I have performed many searches, but I have not seen anyone with a similar problem.  What can I do so that it allows me to check the box during service pack installation?

Unable to install Reporting Services


I've got SQL Server 2005 installed on a Server 2003 box. In trying to fix an issue with the reporting services so I can install Forefront Client Security, I uninstalled reporting services and now I can get it back on. The setup wizard tells me "Setup failed" and that I should refer to the setup log details (Backward compatibility files installation also failed). I uploaded the setup to: http://cid-ebb192ea4fefb7ba.office.live.com/browse.aspx/.Public/sqlLogs?uc=5 and I'd appreciate some help figuring out what's going on.
