    Unanswered: MSDE installation freezes

    I am installtion MSDE on a Windows XP Pro. The install gets through to 5 seconds and freezes. THis sits for about an hour and nothing happens. The Microsoft SQL Server folder is created, but the services are not created. We tried to reinstall many times and removed the registry key before each reinstall (after uninstalling and rebooting). Any ideas about what could be wrong?

    I am using an executable. Not using a command line. THis is suppose to be a "fresh" install.

    Re: MSDE installation freezes

    when you install MSDE you uncompress some files
    then to run the setup you should go into DOS
    to pass some parameters to the setup

    (administrator password and instance name)


    consult this clear'n'neat web site

    Actually this is a setup file that uncompress the files and installs using an install shield dialog

    The install creates a named instance automatically.

    No, normally I would see it in the services, but I do have any servcies related to SQL or the instance. I also am missing the folder under the Microsoft SQL Server folder.
