How to solve "The SQL Server service failed to start. For more information, see the SQL Serve..

Answer / saef-allah

Struggled with this one for 2 days and went through tons of
forums till I found this one:

SokSa.Icy had the right idea.

My particular problem also involved going through the
registry to remove all instances of Visual Studio 2008 as
well as a .Net 3.5 hotfix that I could not get rid of.

Once I uninstalled and did everything this guy did, I also
went through the registry and searched/deleted all
instances of the framework hotfix to get it out of the
add / remove dialog box in control panel.

I also used wise registry cleaner to make sure I got all
inconsistencies out of the way, rebooted, and
installed .net 2.0 Express.

After a successful installation, I rebooted again and ran
sql server 2005 express installation and presto - back in

God Bless the user forums on the Net - Microsoft would have
made a bundle off us by now in tech support fees...
