SQL Server 2008 Installation error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Today I was trying to install SQL Server 2008 but it gave me an error message after completing some stages. I tried to install this program almost 7 times but sometimes it gives an error in the beginning and some times it gives an error near completion. I am very confused about this error.  Please tell me its solution. How can I resolve this error?

Rule Check Result

Rule "Windows Firewall" generated a warning.

The Windows Firewall is enabled. Make sure the appropriate ports are open to enable remote access.

See the rules documentation at " " for information about ports to open for each feature.

SQL Server 2008 Installation error


Hi Antoni,

I guess from your words that you are using either Windows Vista or Windows 7 OS.

Those two versions of OS are the latest ones developed by Microsoft, so it is developed to be more secure than the earlier one.  So you need to turn the firewall off, before starting the installation, then you can open it again if you want.  This process will not take more than 5 minutes.

  • Open the Control Panel.
  • Choose "System and security" if you are using ViewBy; category option, then Windows Firewall icon.
  • Choose "Turn Windows firewall on or off", and select the turn off option for all parts.

Hoping it works for you.  Don't hesitate to contact me if there is any problem.

Best Regards,
