Default April CTP Install Error

Hello,

I was curious if anyone had errors installing the new SQL Server April CTP. I've had issues with the Database Server option. When it would get near the end to the part that stated Configuring SQL Server, I got the error:

SQL Server Setup could not connect to the database service for server configuration. The error was: [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2]. Refer to server error logs and setup logs for more information. For details on how to view setup logs, see "How to View Setup Log Files" in SQL Server Books Online.

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkI...nect@x80070002

Was anyone else getting this?


Brian

Hi Brian,

Did you uninstall any previous CTP / beta for any of the .NET products? I heard there were issues with reinstalling with (parts) of the beta framework still installed.

So far, I installed a few different releases of Sql Server and VS.NET without problems. Haven't installed CTP April 2005 yet, as I was a bit worried about compatibility with VS.NET 2005.....

We read out on Microsoft's site that April CTP is compatible with VS.NET 2005 beta 2. Still working on getting the latter to install correctly. I did uninstall Feb. CTP, but I guess there is an uninstall utility? I read the readme, and it didn't say anything about that, but apparently it comes with it I guess? I don't know...

Thanks

Brian

I think uninstalling the CTP release alone is not enough; you also need to uninstall stuff like the .NET Framework.

Here's what the readme of VS.NET 2005 says:

To install the .NET Framework Beta 2, you must first uninstall the .NET Framework Beta 1 that was originally installed with SQL Server 2005 Beta 2. SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 requires the .NET Framework to work correctly. You must uninstall SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 before you uninstall the .NET Framework Beta 1. The recommended fix includes upgrading to SQL Server 2005 April CTP.

1. From the Control Panel, select Add or Remove Programs.
2. Select SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 components and click Remove to remove each component.
3. Select the .NET Framework Beta and click Remove.
4. From a command window, run:
       msiexec /x {71F8EFBF-09AF-418D-91F1-52707CDFA274}
5. Install SQL Server 2005 April CTP.

This link may also come in handy: http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/vs2005/uninstall/

Over the weekend, I successfully installed VS.NET 2005, Sql Server 2005 and the Express Editions of those products all happily side by side, so it *is* possible..... ;)
