Post by Arturo Navarr » Tue, 20 Jul 1999 04:00:00


When installing the SQL7eval in an NT4 SP5 box,  installation setup fails.

The cnfgsvr.out  file reports:
Starting Service ...
An error occurred while attempting to start the service (1058)
SQL Server configuration failed.

Bellow the sqlstp.log last lines:

12:37:30 Path successfully updated.

Same answer as given before:

- make sure Client for MS networks as the primary net logon
- try disabling multiprotocol net library (even tcp/ip if this does not

Hope this helps...

1. Error 1060 - The specified service does not exist as an installed service

I have Win 2000 sp3 and have installed Sql Server 7.0.
I have never installed Sql Server from scratch. I am moderately proficient
at creating and editing databases and the objects within once it's setup.

My problem is that after installaiton it does not show up as a service. If I
try to start it from Enterprise Manager, I get the error message: Error
1060 - The specified service does not exist as an installed service.

These are the steps I took to install:
Installed the Desktop version and discovered that it did not have Enterprise
Uninstalled the Desktop version
Installed the Standard version
When I ran into the above problem, I also reinstalled the Desktop version.

I have looked in the help file and MS's Knowlege Base to no avail.
Can anyone offer any suggesitons on what is wrong. After I get it running, I
have a database (7.0) to restore.

2. stop recovering database
