The last SQL Server I used ran in the thousands so we would call MSFT for such issues. You paid for this so why not get your money's worth.
And the error is out there on the internet but given only the slim details I can't guess which cause it is this time. There are dozens of reasons for that error so you either call and get your money's worth or work the dozen common issues.
In closing, why not MySQL as it's not as finicky and cranky about licensing?
I have been fighting this for days.
Im trying to install SQL Server 2012 and cannot get past the error:
SQL Writer failed to start. Make sure you have suffecient privileges to start this service.
So I tracked down the error thru the Event log. Been Googeling the last few days for a definitive fix but just not sure how to proceed as the more I look, the more I get confused.
I know it is a Win 7 error. Any help in a resolution would be much appreciated.
