I experienced this problem as well with SQL Server 2017 Developer and it appears to be just bad planning on the part of the SQL Server installation package people. The problem is that Visual Studio 2017 installs the Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable (x86) and (x64) and the SQL Server installation tries to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 ...

If you want the shiny new 2016 monthly releases of Management Studio, which include a handy check for updates mechanism, negates the need for a full setup program and download (since it only retrieves the components you need), as well as a release cycle completely independent from SQL Server, go here (and you can read about it here and here). If you use ...

pg_trgm is an extension, so: CREATE EXTENSION pg_trgm; If you get the following error ERROR: could not open extension control file ".../extension/pg_trgm.control": No such file or directory" then you need to install the module for your operating system Ubuntu/Debian: sudo apt install postgresql-contrib Redhat/Centos sudo dnf install postgresql10-...

The documentation page containing download links for LocalDB 2016 onward is: SQL Server Express LocalDB - Installation media Direct download links are not officially supported. The following LocalDB download links were copied from Scott Hanselman's blog post: SQL Server 2016 SP1: https://download.microsoft.com/download/9/0/7/907AD35F-9F9C-43A5-9789-...

Appears "the way" to install the client, if you want to use hombrew, is: brew install postgresql then psql (the client command line) will now be available to you (it also installs a local Postgres server/database, but you don't have to use that if all you want is the client). Apparently there's also a 'wrapper' to the psql command to make it more &...

These are actually very poor instructions on how to remove the Microsoft SQL Server. SQL Server installs these associated packages. mssql-server mssql-server-fts mssql-tools msodbcsql unixodbc-dev Assuming you wish to totally remove SQL Server, you should # Stop the service systemctl stop mssql-server.service sudo add-apt-repository --remove "$(curl ...

I know of no hacks to get SQL Server 2000 to install on an existing Windows 10 installation. There are probably forces against you from both within the setup program (which looks for certain things on the host system) and within the operating system (which prevents many flavors of older software from getting installed, mostly for security reasons but also ...

The 'mysql' database contains users/privileges/passwords.

SQL Server Express LocalDB (commonly referred to as just "LocalDB") is not a service-based application: it does not show up in "Services", nor does it start up when the machine starts or even stay running until manually shut-down. LocalDB is user-mode background process. It starts either when the first request to connect comes in (assuming the request is ...

Yes SQl server installation is likely to fail if you are trying to install it on root of a drive which is never advisable and has security implications. Actually it is related to permission setting on specific folders. As per this connect item Based on further investigation this issue is due to the fact that SQL tightens the ACL for default data/log ...

I strongly recommend using Postgres.app from the Heroku team, which is also supported by them! It has a menubar icon and the menu has a psql item: You will also find psql included here if you want the same version of that as the server (path may vary by version): /Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/MacOS/bin If you want, you can add this path to your ...

I encountered this exact error and found it was my mistake. Spent whole day for that. Please, carefully observe your /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts. In my case, "oem" was put in /etc/hosts and "eom" was in /etc/hostname.

You can download and install SQL Server Management Studio using the links provided in: Scott Hanselman's website There are links to various SSMS versions (2012, 2014, for x86, x64), as well as links to various SQL-Server Express versions. By the way, you can also use the latest SSMS 2014 to manage your 2012 database.

I was having this issue on Windows 7 64-bit and the following solution is what worked for me (via http://igordcard.blogspot.com/2012/03/unable-to-write-inside-temp-environment.html): Why To understand why this error was happening, I went to my TEMP folder and read the log from the PostgreSQL installer: C:\Users\myuser\AppData\Local\Temp\bitrock_installer....

Have you looked under Advanced Security Settings? The arrows point to the modifications I've often had to specifically apply when installing SQL Server on Windows 2012 R2. For the SQL Server Root Directory, I'll give full control to the SQL Server Process account. Related official documentation: Configure File System Permissions for Database Engine ...

If you already have SQL Server 2014 RTM installed You can't do any slipstreaming - service packs don't support that, only initial installs.

Your title says you have an installation problem, but I don't think this is the case (it seems like you have installed SQL Server okay, you just can't find it). Of course I don't know exactly what options you selected during setup, but from the programs applet, it seems like you should have at least one instance installed. The Browse for Servers dialog is ...

The arch wiki helped me solve this pretty quickly. Install mariadb, afterwards run the following command before starting the mariadb.service: mysql_install_db --user=mysql --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql mysql_secure_installation Arch does not hold your hand, with this type of thing. I guess if you install mysql / mariadb from source this is ...

I would ask your vendor why they can't install SQL Server on a domain controller because the documentation seems to indicate otherwise. See the Installing SQL Server on a Domain Controller section of Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2014 For security reasons, we recommend that you do not install SQL Server 2014 on a domain ...

PowerShell has a built-in mechanism for this which should be easier than the previous answer. From an Internet-connected computer, run Save-Module sqlserver -path c:\tmp (substitute whatever path you want for the module to be saved to). This will save the module to a directory of the same name in c:\tmp (c:\tmp\SqlServer). Then, copy that whole directory ...

This requirement applies even if you install SQL Server components to a non-default drive. ...
