SQL2008 Standard setup failed. The performance counter registry hive is corrupted.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
OS: Windows7 Ultimate 64bit (Traditional Chinese HKSAR) SQL: SQL Sever2008 RC2 Standard English (either x86 or x64) I have searched for answers on the web, tried all of them and still cannot get pass. 1. manually rebuild Performance Counter Library values as suggested in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/300956/en-us 2. string test = string.Format ("{0,3}", CultureInfo.InstalledUICulture.Parent.LCID.ToString ("X")).Replace (" ", "0"); which shows "31748" for me, added it under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib (with values from 009) 3. C:\windows\systrem32\lodctr /r to rebuild counters.   The error just won't go. Actually, I just want to use the management studio to connect to SQL Server2008.. Is there a way to install only the management studio? I am willing to give up installing SQL Server2008 on my Windows7.   Thanks in advance.

How to resolve "Performance counter registry hive consistency check" failed?

I want to install SQL Server 2008 November CTP Developer Enu. When "System Configuration Check" it shows: Rule "Performance counter registry hive consistency check" failed. The performance counter registry hive is corrupted.   And cannot continue installing. How to solve this problem?

"Performance counter registry hive consistency check" failed


I'm trying to install SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, but there is just no way to make it work.

I have tried changing the values in the registry as said here.
But it does not help, nor can I find all the values that are mentioned.

I have tried most parts of the KB article here.
But what I could do, does not help, and I cant find the .dat files mentioned, anywhere.

I'm running a Windows 7 installation virutally with Parallels Desktop on a mac for the only intrerst of using VWD/VS C# expresses and the MS SQL Server. I have even tried to just delete the entire windows installation, reinstalling windows again and then opening IE downloading SQL Server the first thing I do and it still fails as default...

I can't se why it should not work. I mean the system is made by Microsoft just like the programs I'm trying to install, so with even them beeing a missfit, go figure why I'm on a mac. I obviously do not know enough about this stuff to fix the registry, I've tried lots of different cleaning programs and stuff, but nothing helps, so what do I do? just give up?

SQL Server Express 2008 Setup fails. Support Rule "Restart Computer" Failed

Hi, I have been trying to install SQL Server Express for most of the day now without any luck.  Whatever I do setup fails at the stage of Setup Support Rules, Rule "Restart Computer" - Failed.  Needles to say I have restarted (several times!) and I have tried downloading  and installing the "Advanced", "Tools" and "Basic" versions, all give the same error.  Trying a repair does the same.  I have been searching the net for an answer without success, any help would be MUCH appreciated. Further info: I am trying to install a stand-alone installation on to a single PC running under XP SP 3 with .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.  The PC did have some earler versions of SQL server installed but I (?hopefully?) removed all of these through Control Panel.  Before trying the first SQL install I installed Windows installer 4.5 and PowerShell 1.0 as per the Microsoft Instructions. Running SQL Server Configuration Manager results in an error (MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap in might not have been installed correctly).  A directory structure for SQL server exists in "Program Files".  Services MSC shows SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) as Automatic Statup (not running).  Trying to start this manually gives error 14001: "application configuration incorrect - re-install to fix" .......... Which is precisely what I'm trying to do.........:(

Performance Counter questions

Do .net perf counters have a concept of default / initial values? For custom perf counters of type NumberOfItems32, do I need to explicitly set RawValue to 0 or will the perf counter auto initialize to 0 upon creation?   Is manually setting RawValue a thread safe operation?   thanks

Setup Error - Failed to load resources from resource file

I tried to install The Lord of the Rings Online, but it always gives me the message (translated in english) that i need to install Net Framwork v1.1.4322. "ok, that's no problem" i thought, but every time i try to install Net Framework (any version) there are errors when trying to install it. With the 1.1 setup, it tells me "Setup Error - Failed to load resources from resource file", the 2.0 setup tells me that it is already installed (o.O?) but i can't see it in the "uninstall programs" list and the 3.0 and 3.5 just won't start. Nothing happens. I tried to install Net framework 4.0 beta which works fine but LotRO keeps telling me the same error message (i think because version 1.1 isn't included in higher versions)I'm running Windows 7 32 bit Ultimate: 2GB Ram, Intel Core duo e6750, GeForce 8800 gts (512 mb)Please help me :)
