    Unanswered: Problem install SQL Server Desktop Engine

    I'm in the process of attempting to install Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine on my computer in support of an email program call Mailloop6. I've tried going through their tech support but they haven't been able to figure it out.

    I'm running Windows XP with SP1 upgrade on a DSL connection.

    When I installed the program the first time, I got the following error:

    "Setup failed to configure the server. Refer to the server error logs and
    setup error logs for more information."

    The program obviously wouldn't install. I contacted the vendor and they sent a version with a batch file. Same result. I removed all the appropriate registry entries between installs and removed all the data files as well.

    I've tried installing the program using the free MDSE download from the MS site with the following result:

    "A Strong SA password is required for security reasons. Please use SAPWD switch to supply the same. Refer to readme for more details. Setup will now exit."


    Here's the error log that I got after attempting to install:

    with the desktop edition the setup does not work in windows! you must exit to dos and on the directory where you've installed msde you must write:
    setup.exe /qb+ instancename= something sapwd=your password

    thanks!

    I did not know that - the tech support for the software didn't mention a single thing about exiting to DOS. I will definitely give that a try.

    Thanks!
