Cannot install SQL Server express 2008 R2 -Registry key error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    i am trying to install SQL Server Express 2008 R2 on my win 7 machine.  I get this error that stops the db engine from being installed:

    "The following error has occured:SQL Server Setup has failed to modify security permissions on registry key SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\Application\DatabaseMail for (my windows user name).  To proceed, verify the account and domain running SQL Server Setup exist, that the account running SQL Server Setup has administrator privileges, and that the registry key exits on the destination drive"

    I do not know how to fix this.  Any advice?

  • Hi,

    Please ensure that the windows account that you are using to execute the setup is an administrator account. To start the installation right click the setup file and select 'Run as Admiistrator' option.
