    Unanswered: Trouble with MSDE 2000 SP3

    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.

    Check under SQLSTP.LOG for more information about where its failing.
    And refer to this link for clean install by removing previous version.
