As i am trying to install developer edition on a windows XP with Sp2 it freezes while:

"setup is starting the server and installing your chosen configuration"

I checked the app log and found:

"You are running a version of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (also called MSDE) that has known security vulnerabilities when used in conjunction with this version of Windows. To reduce your computer's vulnerability to certain virus attacks, the TCP/IP and UDP network ports of Microsoft SQL Server 2000, MSDE, or both have been disabled. To enable these ports, you must install a patch, or the most recent service pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or MSDE from http://www.microsoft.com/sql/downloads/default.mspx"

I found this article related:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841375/en-us

It tells I must install the latest service pack to solve the issue.

The question is:

How can I apply the latest service pack BEFORE installing SQL server?

I cannot install sql server because I have not installed the SP4, and I cannot apply the SP, because I have not installed SQL server.

"This is a snake biting its tail" my father would have said.

Thanks,

Diego

And if you try enabling port 1433 and 1434 (MS-SQl reserved port) in your firewall configuration.

Ralmada,

I had already enabled port 1433. After enabling port 1434 and cnfgsvr.exe still no luck.

Any other idea?

This is the kind of thing that I cannot understand from MS.

How is it possible that this happens?

When they were testing XP SP2, didn't they have the budget to test the effects of the SP on installing such an important product like sql-server 2000?

Why is it so difficult to find a workaround?

Do I have to license sql-server 2005 to solve the issue?

I know it might sound silly but did you try to install sp4 directly?

You can get it from here

It says it doesn't require SQL server in order to install it.

Hope to help.
