SQL Server 2005 service will not Start on Windows 7 computer
Posted on 2014-01-22
I have an issue with the SQL Server 2005 service not starting on a Windows 7 computer.
When trying to start the service, it times out with a code 3417. A message then comes up saying that Administrative privileges are needed to start the Service. The current user is an Administrator. (This computer is in a remote location on a computer that I did not configure) I believe the user logged on has Administrator rights.
In Event Windows logs/System, there is not much info.
The description for Event ID from source Service Manager cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.
If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.
The following information was included with the event:
SQL Server (MyInstance)
The locale specific resource for the desired message is not present
The service is set to start using "Local System" so it should start regardless of the user right?
Can anyone see what is going on here?
