So I am setting up various Virtual PC images for SQL Server Shiloh and Yukon demos for my upcoming TechEd presentations. I was installing on different platforms, also -- because hard drive space is cheap and variety is the spice of life. :-)

Suddenly I was seeing an alert with the following text in it, but not with all installs:

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 CTP Setup
----------------------------------------
SQL Server Setup could not connect to the database service for server configuration. The error was: [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Shared Memory Provider: Connection was terminated [1236]. Refer to server error logs and setup logs for more information. For details on how to view setup logs, see "How to View Setup Log Files" in SQL Server Books Online.

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkID=20476&ProdName=Microsoft%20SQL%20Server&ProdVer=9.00.1116&EvtSrc=setup.rll&EvtID=29545&EvtType=lib%5Codbc_connection.cpp@Do_sqlScript@OdbcConnection::connect@x800704d4

BUTTONS:

Ugh, what to do?

Thankfully, Mike Epprecht posted about this problem, and its solution, in a very helpful post.

Back on track. Thanks, Mike! :-)
