INTRODUCTION

This article describes how to troubleshoot Business Contact Manager Setup issues that may occur when you use Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager or Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager Update.

Note Some of the procedures that are described in this article apply to both Business Contact Manager and to Business Contact Manager Update. If the procedure applies only to Business Contact Manager or only to Business Contact Manager Update, the procedure states the version to which the procedure applies. You can use most of the procedures that are described in this article to troubleshoot stand-alone Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE) Setup issues.

How to obtain Setup logs

When you troubleshoot Setup issues, you may have to obtain the following Setup logs, depending on the version of Business Contact Manager that you are installing:
Collapse this tableExpand this table
Log nameThe version to which the log applies
The Windows Installer Setup log Business Contact Manager and Business Contact Manager Update
The MSDE Setup logBusiness Contact Manager Update
The MSDE configuration logMSDE

The Windows Installer Setup log

By default, the Windows Installer Setup log is not created when you install Business Contact Manager. You can use the following command to create this log during Business Contact Manager Setup:
drive:\setup.exe /l*v c:\Setup_log_name
Note In this command, drive is the source location of the Setup file. Setup_log_name is the name that you want to use for the Windows Installer Setup log. The command-line switches are not case-sensitive. For example, use the following command to create the Windows Installer Setup log:
d:\setup.exe /l*v c:\setup.log
Note Setup logs can become as big as 10 to 12 MB.

When you run this command in Business Contact Manager, both MSDE and Windows Installer Setup issues are logged in the Windows Installer Setup log. When you run this command in Business Contact Manager Update, the Setup.log file and the Msde_setup.log file are created. The Setup.log file contains any Setup errors that are not related to the MSDE Setup process that occur during Setup. If you are using Business Contact Manager Update, you can use both of these logs to troubleshoot Setup issues.

The MSDE Setup log

When you install Business Contact Manager Update, an MSDE Setup log is automatically created. The name of this file is Msde_setup_number.log. In this file name, number is a random number. For example, the name of the log file may be Msde_setup_1108685580.log. The MSDE Setup log is created in the user's Temp folder. To locate this file, click Start, point to Run, type %temp%, and then click OK.

Setup is divided into the following processes:
  • Business Contact Manager Setup
  • MSDE Setup
If Setup fails during the MSDE Setup process, you may want to obtain only the default MSDE log.

The MSDE configuration log

The MSDE configuration log is named Cnfgsvr.out. MSDE creates the Cnfgsvr.out file during Setup. The Cnfgsvr.out file contains any Setup or configuration errors. The Cnfgsvr.out file is located in one of the following folders, depending on the version of Business Contact Manager that you are using:
  • Business Contact Manager:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$MICROSOFTBCM\Install
  • Business Contact Manager Update:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$MICROSOFTSMLBIZ\Install

How to use the Setup logs

To find the source of a Setup error, search for "return value 3" in the Windows Installer Setup log and in the MSDE Setup log. The error information is located immediately before or after the "return value 3" string. However, the errors in the MSDE Setup log may be generic errors that point to several possible causes. If you cannot find the source of the problem in the MSDE Setup log, obtain a copy of the MSDE configuration log, Cnfgsvr.out. The Cnfgsvr.out file may contain enough detailed information to locate the source of the problem.

How to reset Business Contact Manager Setup

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

Sometimes, Business Contact Manager Setup fails as soon as it starts. Or, Business Contact Manager Setup fails when it is halfway through the Setup process. This behavior can occur if you run Business Contact Manager Setup more than one time. If you run Business Contact Manager Setup more than one time, reset Business Contact Manager Setup.

To reset Business Contact Manager Setup, follow these steps:
  1. Rename the following folder:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server
  2. Rename the following registry subkeys:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Setup\66563AD8-637B-407F-BCA7-0233A16891AB
If you use the Add or Remove Programs tool to remove Business Contact Manager, rename the following registry subkeys:
  • Business Contact Manager:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\8DA36566B736F704CB7A20331A8619BA
  • Microsoft Office Small Business Edition:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\E00686AB9D6929E4082F629B86B1A536
  • Microsoft Office Business Contacts for Pocket PC:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\68B6B2DDC87776948861B37868DEE1EB

How to determine whether a Setup error is related to MSDE

To determine whether a Setup error is related to MSDE, install the stand-alone MSDE package. If the installation of Business Contact Manager fails with an MSDE-related error, the stand-alone MSDE program will not be installed correctly. The installation of MSDE fails with the same error that occurs during the installation of Business Contact Manager.

To download MSDE, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=413744d1-a0bc-479f-bafa-e4b278eb9147&displaylang=en

How to resolve common MSDE Setup issues

This section describes some of the most common MSDE Setup issues.

Setup fails if the ODBC drivers are missing

Symptoms
In Business Contact Manager and in Business Contact Manager Update, MSDE Setup fails and rolls back. Also, you may receive a 1919 error during Microsoft Office Setup.

When this issue occurs, the following error is logged in the MSDE log:
Executing "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn\cnfgsvr.exe -V 1 -M 1 -U sa -I "MICROSOFTSMLBIZ" -Q "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS""
MSI (c) (08:2C) [19:09:18:234]: Font created.  Charset: Req=0, Ret=0, Font: Req=MS Shell Dlg, Ret=MS Shell Dlg
Setup failed to configure the server. Refer to the server error logs and setup error logs for more information.
MSI (s) (80!30) [19:09:23:375]: Product: Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine -- Setup failed to configure the server. Refer to the server error logs and setup error logs for more information.
Action ended 19:09:23: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.
Additionally, the following error is logged in the Cnfgsvr.out file:
driver={sql server};server=HP7955\MICROSOFTSMLBIZ;UID=sa;PWD=;database=master
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

Cause
This problem occurs if the following registry subkey is missing:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI
This issue may also occur if this registry subkey does not have valid registry entries. If this registry subkey is missing, you cannot use the ODBC tool in Control Panel to add or to create a new data source.

Users who experience a problem with the ODBC drivers report that they receive a 1919 error when Office is installed. This error is not directly related to Business Contact Manager Setup. If you receive this error, you can click Ignore and continue with Setup.
Resolution
To resolve this issue, copy the missing registry subkey from a computer that does not experience this problem.

Important When you copy a registry subkey from one computer to a computer that is experiencing this issue, you must verify that the system folder is the same on both computers. For example, the system folder must be C:\Windows on the source computer and on the destination computer. If the system folder is different on these computers, Setup will continue to fail.

For more information about how to resolve this issue, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
818954 "Error 1919. Error configuring ODBC data source" error messages when you run the Setup program for Office 2003
If the issue is not resolved after you copy the registry subkey, you can reinstall the MDAC drivers on the affected computer. To do this, follow these steps.

Important To perform this procedure, you must have the Windows XP installation CD. Or, you must have access to the Windows XP source files.
  1. Configure Windows to show the hidden files:
    1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
    2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
    3. Click the View tab, and then click to select the check box that is next to Show hidden files and folders in the Advanced settings list.
    4. In the Advanced settings list, click to clear the check box that is next to Hide extensions for known file types, and then click OK.
  2. Reinstall MDAC.

    Note You may not have to perform all the following steps.
    1. Click Start, click Run, type %windir%\inf, and then click OK.
    2. Right-click the Mdac.inf file, and then click Install.
    3. If you are running Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), insert the Windows XP SP2 CD when you are prompted, and then open the following location:
      Drive name:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386
      If you are running Windows XP, insert the Windows XP CD when you are prompted, and then open the following location:
      Drive name:\I386
      Note In both paths, Drive name is the name of the CD drive.
    4. When the installation is completed, restart the computer.

Errors are logged if the SQL protocols are missing

Symptoms
In Business Contact Manager and in Business Contact Manager Update, the following error is logged in the MSDE log file:
Executing "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn\cnfgsvr.exe -V 1 -M 1 -U sa -I "MICROSOFTSMLBIZ" -Q "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS""
MSI (c) (F4:B8) [17:43:50:750]: Font created.  Charset: Req=0, Ret=0, Font: Req=MS Shell Dlg, Ret=MS Shell Dlg

-m -Q -T4022 -T3659
An error occurred while attempting to start the service (1460)
SQL Server configuration failed.
Cause
These errors may occur if the SQL protocols are missing.
Resolution
To resolve this problem, run the Client Network utility. Then, use the SQL Networking utility to verify that the SQL protocols are enabled.

To run the Client Network utility, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type cliconfg.exe, and then click OK.
  2. Verify that Named Pipes and TCP/IP are enabled.
To use the SQL Networking utility to verify that the SQL protocols are enabled, follow these steps:

Errors are logged if the SA password is blank

Symptoms
In Business Contact Manager and in Business Contact Manager Update, the following error may be logged in the Verbose log:
An error was encountered during connection to server: 3 Ending custom action UpgDetectBlankSaLogin(). Action ended 12:18:21: UpgDetectBlankSaLogin.2D02443E_7002_4C0B_ABC9_EAB2C064397B. Return value 3.
Cause
This issue may occur if the SA password is blank.
Workaround
To work around this issue, run the following command:
d:\setup.exe /l*v sapwd=password
Note In this command, password is the password that you are using.

Important Make sure that you use a strong password.

For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
814463 How to specify a strong SA password when you install SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000)

MSDE installation fails if the registry permissions are not correct

Symptoms
In Business Contact Manager and in Business Contact Manager Update, you cannot install MSDE, and you receive a 2835 error. Additionally, the following error is logged in the Verbose log:
Error : unable to disable network access to MSDE. Ending custom action DisableNetAccess() Action ended 14:59:03: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.
Cause
This issue may occur if you do not have the appropriate rights to the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server
This issue can occur even if you are an Administrator.

Note You can run Regmon to help locate any permissions problems in the registry. The Regmon log will also contain an Access Denied error.
Resolution
To resolve this issue, use Registry Editor to give the Administrator group and the System group Full Control permissions for the following registry subkey and for all the entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server

MSDE Setup fails if the SQL performance counters are corrupted

Symptoms
MSDE Setup fails and the following error is logged in the Verbose log:
Starting custom action InstallPerfMon Registering performance counters from sqlctr.ini PerfmonLoad routine returned error code 6 Action ended 17:27:56: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.
