Microsoft SharePoint server 2010 encountered an error during setup. One or more required office comp

I am encountering this error during setup. The server previously had WSS 3.0 and the Group Board Workspace. I uninstalled those and installed sharepoint foundation 2010. Initially It was up and running but I was receiving errors trying to load the group space template, so I uninstalled SPF2010. cleaned up the registry pointers to the old WSS3.0 and Groupboard Workspace and tried to reinstall. Now I get the error

Microsoft SharePoint server 2010 encountered an error during setup. One or more required office components failed to complete successfully.

Looking into the issue it appears that setup cannot install the embedded sql server, since the logs indicate a dbwrap error. There are no "pendingfilerename" operations which fixed this problem for some. I tried to install as a farm but it won't allow me to use a local admin account.  I also looked at the sql configurations and the windows internal database is running.

Any ideas how to I can remove the windows internal database and reinstall SF2010?

Error occurred while SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup

I already have sql server 2005 running on my computer (Win XP SP2) and I have been trying to install the Sql server 2008 R2 version. (I've downloaded in last week.)   While I'm installing, I got the following msg box : The following eror has occurred: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. Click 'Retry' to retry the failed action, or click 'Cancel' to cancel this action and continue setup.   At that time, Installation progress show "ASConfigAction_install_postmsi_Cpu32". So I assumed something is wrong in SSAS installation.   I just click "Cancel" in the above msg box as I have no choice.   After completed, it show "Failed" in "Analysis Services".   Then I restarted my PC. When I try to start SSAS service manually, I got the following msg box.   The SQL Server Analysis Services (Instance_Name) service failed to start due to the following error:  Error 1053 : The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.    Actually I just want to try CUBE in this version. (my deadline is coming friday.)  :(   Please advise & thanks in advance.

Search server 2010 setup - error creating search service application

I am running in a very similar siutation as this post:

I am configuring a new Search Server 2010 production environment.

I used the search setup account to run the setup and run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard.

During the first run of the SharePoint configuration wizard (where the farm account and service applications are setup), the process failed because the search service application could not be created.  

Errors were encountered during the configuration of the Search Service Application.
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: User does not have permissiont to perform this action.

I was under the assumption that the setup account had securityadmin and dbcreator SQL Server roles.  However, this was not the case and I had them added.  My original thought was the setup failed because of this.  After those roles were added, I tried to recreate the search service application and I still get a failure.

I am pretty sure I have followed the prerequisites as prescribed by Microsoft in terms of account setup (

Error during SQL Server 2008 setup on windows 7 home premium



I have Windows 7 home Premium on 64 bit machine. I have installed Visual Studio 2008 sucessfully and SQL Server 2008 installer also shows "successful" installation. However when I try to login thru Sql mgmt Studio, I get error " No process is on the other end of the pipe". I checked SQL Server configuration and Named Pipes configuration, that seems all right. When I checked event log, it had following msg:

The Tabular Data Stream (TDS) version 0x730a0003 of the client library used to open the connection is unsupported or unknown. The connection has been closed.

on googling, some of posts suggest to download .Net f/w 2.0 SP1. I downloaded the same from MS site, but on instllation, I get msg "this version is not supported on windows vista".

Please suggest any solution/workaround, i have been struggling with this for sometime now.

thanks in advance

SQL Server 2008 r2 - Setup support files - Install error / reading from file


I'm installing SQL server 2008 r2 on a Win2003 R2 x86 system.

After i start the setup, the "setup support files" box begins installing, after a while i get this error:

"Error reading from file f:\1033_ENU_LP\x86\setup\sqlsupport_msi\PFiles\SqlServr\100\Setup\ewbfphdh\x86\Patch\rs2000.msp verify that the file exists and that you can access it."

I've tried another DVD, i've tried a mounted share on another machine...no go....i've tried an ISO file mounted on this server... same error.

Is there any way i can install this "setup support files" from another location? (download)

Is there a switch soo it won't install reporting services? (...i think this file rs2000.msp is from reporting services)

Error upgrading SQL Server 2008


i was normally using VS2005 and SQL server 2005...

i upgraded to SQL Server 2008... and then...

Error: Encountered multiple versions of the same assembly with GUID...try pre-importing...TlbImp


Hi!  Can someone tell me how I can troubleshoot the following error: "Encountered multiple versions of the same assembly with GUID...try pre-importing one of these assemblies".

The website developed in VS 2010 (.Net 3.5). This error is only received on my workstation.  Another person developing the site does not experience this issue at all.  Also, not sure if this matters, but on my workstation the 'Assembly Information...' dialog contains no values even though the 'AssemblyInfo.vb' file does specify values for the title, desc, etc.  The GUID being referenced in the error is the main project of the three projects within the solution.

I tried looking through the GAC, but do not see any references to the projects or DLLs in the VS solution and am not sure what else/where to look.

If I delete the copy of the solution on my local machine and pull down a copy from source control (AnkhSVN) the solution will build with no error.  Once I make any changes, such as adding a new aspx file, then the error is received.

I can provide any additional information needed.

Error Handling: Throwing Custom Exception Types from a Managed COM+ Server Application


Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. In addition, COM+ services are available to .NET code as Enterprise Services, so you can leverage exceptions in your Enterprise Services design.In this article the author describes custom exceptions, throwing exceptions across COM interop boundaries, and working with Enterprise Services.
