I'm using the MSDE 2000 SP3 merged module with Installshield. It installs just fine, but then at the very end I get an error saying: "Setup failed to configure the server"
I checked the MSDE log file and it just says at the end:
SQL Server is terminating due to 'stop' request from Service Control Manager.
I have checked everywhere for a solution and tried everything but nothing has helped so far. I tried wiping out the MSSQL directory and deleting all the registry KEYs that were mentioned in a couple Microsoft docs to make sure it was completely gone but that didn't help. I made sure I was on as an administrator as well. Nothing I have read so far as working for me, any other ideas? What exactly is the problem?
Also, is there a single MSDE 2000 installer available anywhere that has the SP3 patch already applied just in case I can't get this working? Currently I have to distribute MSDE 2000 and the SP3 patch and have people go through both steps.
