I'm setting up my SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition on Windows 2003 Server
Here are my steps after successfully installed Windows 2003:
1. Install SQL Server 2000 Components
2. Install SQL Server 2000 Components SP3a
3. Install SQL Server 2000 MSDE
4. Install SQL Server 2000 MSDE SP3a
Reboot the system.
I got the error message of
"Your SQL Server installation is either corrupted or has been tampered with
(unknown package id). Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct the
My SQL Server service can not be started, even manually.
Please let me know if you see any problem here.
Thanks a lot.
