SQL MSDE installation problem

6 New Member
I'm trying to install MSDE 2000 on my WIN XP machine using the setup.exe, but it always gives me error saying "set strong sa password" after the message " Please Wait while windows configures Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine"

I also tried installing it by command line command below, it shows that its configuring and installing software, but disappears in the middle. I see the SqlServer agent installed and also folders inside C:\Program Files\Microsoft Sql Server folder, but SQL is still not listed in the installed programs

msiexec /i sql2000.msi /log exception.log instancename="i malla
" securitymode=sq l sapwd="sapasswo rd"

Your help would be greatly appreciated

Strong password means alphanumeric it should contain characters and numbers.

Good Luck.

I have a copy of MS Visual Studio 2002 Professional ACADEMIC which I understand is the same as the regular Professional version with the addition of a student CDROM. The installation program on the first CDROM only copies the MSDE to the harddrive and the copied setup file has to then be manually executed to complete the installation. Are the SQL tools such the SQL Enterprise Manager and MS Query included in the professional version? ...

Hi All I wasn't aware of the security feature of MSDE, whereby it doesn't allow the TCP/IP(?) network protocol to work and allow a networked PC to connect to an SQL DB running on a MSDE installation on another PC. It only allows the 'host' PC to connect to the SQL DB. I've sussed this in my MSDE installer so that it enables the network feature when it installs, but I have a user who already has MSDE installed and running with the...

Both have 2 Ghz processors (one Intel, one AMD), both have a decent amount of RAM (Intel system...
