Microsoft R and SQL Server 2016
I installed Microsoft R on an existing instance of SQL Server 2016 and I cannot get the SQL Server Launchpad service to start. Each time I try, I get "The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details." In the application error log is says "A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the SQL Server Launchpad (MSSQLSERVER) service to connect."
I have tried everything I can find and no joy. I read that if the R library is out of sync with SQL Server this can happen. How can I tell if this is the case and if so how can I fix it?
Here is the version number of the Launchpad.exe file 13.0.1601.5
Here is the version number of the SQLSVC.dll is 13.0.5216.0
The @@VERSION for SQL Server is Microsoft SQL Server 2016 (SP2-CU3) (KB4458871) - 13.0.5216.0 (X64) Sep 13 2018 22:16:01
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
