I want to setup a sqlserver 2008 developeredition on my windows-vista notebook but the setup-check want me to reboot first. But this doesn't help after reboot the setup want a reboot again.

I got the tip: You can open Regedit, and modify this key"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet?\Control\Session Manager" and delete any value in "PendingFileRenameOperations?"

That works for one try, later i have the same strange entries in this particular registry-Key. What could reenter this values?



Edit: The Question is: how come these entry after a reboot again in there?


I've had an issue before with some Microsoft software (can't remember off the top of my head what it was) which choked with a similar You need to reboot message because there was stuff in the RunOnce registry keys - I don't know about SQL Server, but it's worth a shot.

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
  • i checked only the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet?\Control\Session Manager" and deleted any values in "PendingFileRenameOperations?" and all worked fine (allmoust). The Answers is: how come these entry after a reboot again in there? – Ice Mar 29 '10 at 20:31
