Windows XP and SQL Server Developer Edition

Hi Team,

Is anyone else out there struggling with SQL Server on XP? Specifically, is
there anyone struggling with starting the Agent Service using the
NT_AUTHORITY "security" role? I am having no end of grief.

I started with a perfectly clean XP install. I performed an absolutely
clean, default install, and the installation hung. It appeared to freeze
with the Agent startup. killed the install after 30 minutes of "freeze"
time, and re-booted. The SQL Server Service started up no problem, but the
Agent would not.

I attempted to repair the installation, which seemed to work fine, but the
Agent was still not working. I had used the "Local System Account" settings
to start the Agent, then tried a few different settings, all to no avail.

Finally, I tried to apply some of the suggestions in the various newsgroups.
I finally did get the Agent working, but now there are other problems.

God! What a PAIN IN THE ASS! I can't believe this. I have given my life to
Bill, and his SQL Team apparently can't get XP and SQL Server to work
together easily. It's such a pain.
