    Hello!

    I am trying to install MS SQL Server 2000 on my PC which is running WinXP SP2. At the ending of the setup I get an error stating that 'Could not start server. Refer to sqlsetup.log for more details'

    Here is an excerpt from the log where the error occurs:

    Starting Service ...

    SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

    -m -Q -T4022 -T3659

    Connecting to Server ...

    driver={sql server};server=A.U.Shaikh;UID=sa;PWD=;database=master

    Changing my machine name solved the problem. I changed it from 'A.U.Shaikh' to 'AUSHAIKH'.
