  • And what did you actually attempt to do? It appears that you left out that.

  • I searched my issue on the internet found issues on the forums. Someone told this error becoz of visual studio and aslo instruct to verify the Devenv.exe Config is in the correct folder. But it shows the error again. "Cannot find the the specified file".

    I Restart my computer and again install only the database engine it also show some error.

    The following error has occurred:

    Failed to open the registry key SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER1\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib or set its security descriptor: Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation..

    Hi Sarath Jasrin,

    According to your description, this error happens since some registry keys that need to be fixed do not have administrator access.We need to verify if you run setup.exe as administrator, and the account have permission to access the installation folder. I recommend you open up the registry and navigate to the registry key with the issue can give the administrator access to the registry key, and then try to updata again.

    Thanks,
    Sofiya Li

    Hi Sarath Jasrin,

    According to your description, we need to verify if the error occurs when you installing SQL Server. If it occurs when you installing visual studio, I recommend you post this issue on the visual studio forums, It is appropriate and more experts will assist you. However, if you installed SQL Server, usually the registry key was located in HKY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\<yournameinstancename>\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib. We need to verify if the path is right when checking. About assigning permissions to a registry key , you can right click the options of “Permissions” on the edit menu, then, assign an related access level to the selected key.

    For more information about assigning permissions to a registry key, you can review the following article.
