We are experiencing an error when installing the SQL Server 2005 Desktop.

Here's the error from the dialog: The SQL Server System Configuration Checker cannot be executed due to WMI configuration on the machine <<MACHINE_NAME>>, Error: 2147942405 (0x800700005).

I have seen other postings, and errors on the web relating to BITs, MOM and SMS experiencing this issue on server side installs, but not on desktops. The machine in question is 32 bit Windows XP SP2, with 2 GB of RAM and plenty of disk space, Pentium 4 CPU and the user is an administrator. The SQL Server is running as a local system account.

The machine is a desktop already running a SQL Server 2000 Server deployment.

I found this batch file and ran it and it fixed my WMI problems on SQL Server 2003.  Copy this into notepad as save as fixwmi.cmd and then from a command line run c:\fixwmi.cmd.

It takes several minutes to complete and at points it appears that it is not running but it is.  After it is complete, you see the :END statement start the SQL server installation again and you should be fixed.

 

FIXWMI.CMD
------------------------

@echo on
cd /d c:\temp
if not exist %windir%\system32\wbem goto TryInstall
cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem
net stop winmgmt
winmgmt /kill
if exist Rep_bak rd Rep_bak /s /q
rename Repository Rep_bak
for %%i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %%i
for %%i in (*.exe) do call :FixSrv %%i
for %%i in (*.mof,*.mfl) do Mofcomp %%i
net start winmgmt
goto End

:FixSrv
if /I (%1) == (wbemcntl.exe) goto SkipSrv
if /I (%1) == (wbemtest.exe) goto SkipSrv
if /I (%1) == (mofcomp.exe) goto SkipSrv
%1 /RegServer

:SkipSrv
goto End

:TryInstall
if not exist wmicore.exe goto End
wmicore /s
net start winmgmt
:End
