    Unanswered: SQL Server 7 setup failed

    Please suggest what I can do .
    I had SQL Server 7.0 ( NT 4) installed on my desktop . I have not used it for a while and lately found that there is a problem to start service. So , I decided to reinstall it.

    As a result of installation I got the message : "Setup Failed to configure the server"
    The log does not tell to much besides repreating the same message , that setup failed.
    What could be a problem ? How I can fix it.

    Thank you.

    was the original version the evaluation version?

    and did you install on top of an eval with a standard edition?

    It was regular version, not eval.
    I uninstalled the previous version before starting the new one.

    it definitely sounds like msde, not a full version.

    What stage of the setup did you get this error in? Have you tried to rerun it? Have you tried accessing SQL Server at all since the message?
