The SQL Server service failed to start.

I am installing ACT 2009 version 11 on Windows 7 and running into this error:

 

The SQL Server service failed to start. For more information, see the SQL Server Books Online topics, "How to: View SQL Server 2005 Setup Log Files" and "Starting SQL Server Manually."

 

Can anyone help on how to get past this?

Thanks!

Tracy~

Hello Tracy,

Welcome to the Sage ACT! Online Community!

 

If you are receiving this error when the computer is booting up, have you tried starting the SQL Service (ACT7) service manually?  Instructions for doing so can be found in the following article: KB Article 28216
