Hi All, I have a requirement installing sql server. But I cannot install successfully. I am explaining the details below. Thank you for the time you took to read it and respond to this post. SQL server 2008....stand alone. Windows 2008 r2 I have been trying to install a SQL server default instance;However, its failing to install all the engine services....like.....Database engine services, SQL server replication, full text search, analysis services, reporting services. Integration services and other shared components are successfully installing. I tried to uninstall the whole thing and tried to reinstall...couple of times, still same results. After successfully uninstalling all the components, I still see the following under registery editor/hkey_local_machine/software/Microsoft/Microsoft SQL server/100/machines/ Name as (default), type reg_sz, data (value not set) Anyone have any clue/suggestions. Thank you for your participation in advance.
