Sql server 2008 r2 express installation failed, sql100exception on sqlenginedbstartconfigaction_install_configrc

    Question

  • I'm trying to install sql server 2008 r2 express on Win XP Sp3 machine (with .net 3.5 sp1, .net 4) and getting this exception (after ~20 installations on similar configurations in the last two weeks):

    EventType : sql100exception     P1 : sql server 2008 r2@rtm@     P2 : 0xe53883a0
    P3 : 0xe53883a0     P4 : 0xbe03358b@1306@24     P5 : 0xbe03358b@1306@24     
    P6 : sqlenginedbstartconfigaction_install_configrc     P7 : 0x9396de01     
    P8 : unknown     P9 : unknown     P10 : unknown

    After this message setup continues, but at the end sql services failed to install and i got error message again (check logs,...).

    I tried several times completely removing sql server installation, deleting directories and every keys in registry named like Microsoft Sql Server, MSSQL, etc, checked permission for Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW\Installed registry, deleted msxml 4.0 sp2 processor, checked if temp directory is encrypted, checked gpedit...



    Here are log files:

  • I changed Sql Server Database Engine Service Account to NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM (Service Configuration setup step). Installation completed without errors and it works.

    Usually, I select NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE Service Account, but for the current configuration SYSTEM account should work.
