SQL Server Express 2005 fails to install

    Question

  • I am trying to install MS SQL Server Express but the installation always fails. I have copied the summary log below and can provide more details if you require. Web Developer and C# Express install OK.

    I have been trying to install this for around 2 weeks now with no luck ... I even had the PC formatted and rebuilt but the install still fails. If it installed and worked before, i cannot understand why it doesn't work now. The summary log is provided below:

  • After trying for nearly 3 weeks to resolve this problem, I have finally managed to get SQL Server Express 2005 with advanced services installed (SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE). I have also just installed the toolkit (SQLEXPR_TOOLKIT.EXE) and books online without a problem.

     

    I tried many installs, rebuilds, etc… but always received this failure message:

     

    The SQL Server service failed to start. For more information, see the SQL Server Books Online topics, "How to: View SQL Server 2005 Setup Log Files" and "Starting SQL Server Manually." The error is (1067) The process terminated unexpectedly…

     

    First make sure you are installing using a login account that has admin privileges.

    Next, run SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE

     

     

    On the one of the initial setup screens, there is a checkbox that says something like "hide advanced setup installation options"  - the box is checked by default but you should UNCHECK IT.

     

    Over the setup screens that follow, look for a dropdown box that says:

     

    Install SQL Server as a “Network Service”

     

    CHANGE the dropdown box to “Local Service”.

     

    On one of the following setup screens, I left the Authentication Method as “Windows Authentication” and it installed without a problem.

     

    Note, however that I have come across people in the forums who need to select “Mixed Mode Authentication” and provide a strong password otherwise the installation will fail again.

     

    After this setup screen, just accept the default options and the software will install without a problem.

     

    Hope this helps …

  • Which version of Windows do you have installed, XP Professional or XP Home Edition??

  • Take a look at the following logs for more information:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Files\SQLSetup0001_GLKD2396800_Core(Local).log
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Files\SQLSetup0001_GLKD2396800_SQL.log

    The installation is failing because your server can not be started, so look in the logs for any information about failed startups to see if there are details about the failure.

    According to the summary, you computer does not meet one of the hardware requriements. During installation, you should be seeing the System Configuration Checker give a list of checks and whether your computer passes or fails, which one is failing? You should check the System Requirements for your version of Express to be sure your computer meets them. You can find a copy of the file at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b0167129-5ac8-49c4-90bd-0493f3773081&DisplayLang=en.

    Let us know what you find.

  • I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 ...
    I did get a warning about the hardware requirements during install but I had this warning before and SQL Server installed and ran OK. I just rebuilt my PC and now SQL Server Express will not install.

    I will try to provide more details tomorrow ...

    [26.06.2006] Update

    I am running on a P4 3GHz with 512MB RAM and 40GB hard drive space ... I cannot understand why I do not meet the minimum installation requirements ... my other PC has XP1700+ CPU with 512MB RAM and 120GB hard disk and all the express editions run fine on that ...

    [27.06.2006] Update on P4 Hardware (more detail on that provided above):

  • P4 530 3.0Ghz Hyperthreaded L2 1024-KB Integrated ECC 800Mhz FSB Prescott
  • Intel 915G chipset with FSB
  • 40-GB 7200 rpm Quiet Seek and Idle SMART III Ultra ATA/100
  • 512-MB DDR Synch Dram PC3200 (2x 256MB 400MHz, Dual Channel) Non ECC (4 slots, 2 slots free)

  • From your description, I agree that your computer should meet the requirements. I'm going to redirect this to the Setup forum so they can take a look at this log.

  • Thanks Mike ... it has taken me over 2 weeks to get this far, so a quick response would be appreciated.

    If anyone needs to look at any other logs, then please let me know and i will post them on here...

    Thanks

  • After trying for nearly 3 weeks to resolve this problem, I have finally managed to get SQL Server Express 2005 with advanced services installed (SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE). I have also just installed the toolkit (SQLEXPR_TOOLKIT.EXE) and books online without a problem.

     

    I tried many installs, rebuilds, etc… but always received this failure message:

     

    The SQL Server service failed to start. For more information, see the SQL Server Books Online topics, "How to: View SQL Server 2005 Setup Log Files" and "Starting SQL Server Manually." The error is (1067) The process terminated unexpectedly…

     

    First make sure you are installing using a login account that has admin privileges.

    Next, run SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE

     

     

    On the one of the initial setup screens, there is a checkbox that says something like "hide advanced setup installation options"  - the box is checked by default but you should UNCHECK IT.

     

    Over the setup screens that follow, look for a dropdown box that says:

     

    Install SQL Server as a “Network Service”

     

    CHANGE the dropdown box to “Local Service”.

     

    On one of the following setup screens, I left the Authentication Method as “Windows Authentication” and it installed without a problem.

     

    Note, however that I have come across people in the forums who need to select “Mixed Mode Authentication” and provide a strong password otherwise the installation will fail again.

     

    After this setup screen, just accept the default options and the software will install without a problem.

     

    Hope this helps …

    I hope you can help me to found what is wrong to make my install unsuccessfull. I read in others forums, that some processors are not supported. Well the machine where i a want to install is:

    Processor TM5600 / 632 MHz, 240 MB

    Thanks for all.

    Friday, July 21, 2006 2:57 PM
  • Same problem here with Crusoe TM5800/800MHz, 512MB.

    Tried every option and still not success. My guess is Crusoe is not supported since it's less than Pentium III...

    If they know, for gods sake, why not fix it!!!

     

    Basically if you are installing on XP SP2, the Network Service doesn't have access rights on a super-secret hidden folder that you've never even heard of. Add the rights to the folder and blam, install works fine.

     

    This is SO not our problem, why do we have to deal with this stuff!!?

    Thanks a LOT BEN. You made my day. I was struggling for 2 weeks on this.

    I was struggling to find NetworkService folder.

    But after reading your message "super-secret hidden folder",

    I went to Tools => Folder Options => View and deselected "Hide Protected Operating Systems Files (Recommended)"

    And finally the C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService folder was revealed. Later I couldn't find C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Application Data\Microsoft\Protect folder. But I simply added  Network Service in the security tab of C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService folder and gave full permissions and it did the magic !
