How to start SQL
Server 2000 under Windows XP

I love you google! (who was mentioned during
Buffy last night)


Do you know how much Windows sucks? I tried to install SQL Server on my
Windows XP box, clicked a wrong button somewhere, and now it tells me:

“A previous program installation created pending file operations on the
installation machine. You must restart the computer before running setup.”

Oh, and this still happens after I restart the box. Ah, I love this wonderfully
designed operating system…
