SQL 2012 - An error has occurred while trying to access the license validation file. Please reinstall SQL server to correct this file.

    Frage

  • I had an evaluation copy of SQL Server 2012 installed which expired yesterday. Even though a had subsequently installed a valid copy SQL 2012 Enterprise I could not open the management studio.

    Based on advice in other articles I completely un-installed all additions of SQL Server on the machine followed by a fresh install of SQL 2012 Enterprise (64bit).

    I now get the message "An error has occurred while trying to access the license validation file. Please reinstall SQL server to correct this file."

    A previous post suggested the below, what should I do for a 2012 install to correct the issue?

    "Hi Kevin,

    It should be a known issue. It is caused by that the setup fail to create the checksun key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\ClientSetup because of sqlboot.dll issue.

    To fix the issue, please follow these steps:

    1. Create a text file with the following content:
      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\ClientSetup]
      "checksum"=hex:38,39,33,66,66,66,30,65,62,38,32,62,30,34,37,62,31,30,35,31,36,\
       38,32,31,30,30,63,63,36,36,33,30,30,31,35,36,38,61,38,33,36,31,37,63,66,62,\
       31,61,38,61,36,63,32,66,36,35,32,31,39,65,66,34,30,30,39,32,62,37,61,39,32,\
       62,32,35,33,32,33,39,63,62,36,35,33,38,65,31,66,34,61,31,33,63,61,64,32,65,\
       33,34,37,66,37,64,30,64,33,32,32,64,36,36,62,31,62,66,33,66,63,34,34,65,65,\
       35,37,38,34,63,61,65,66,33,64,31,30,31,31,38,65,30,37,63,39,66,66,31,32,61,\
       66,66,63,35,32,32,31,64,61,34,34,32,34,64,37,34,66,63,37,30,39,35,32,32,39,\
       38,62,31,63,34,34,65,66,35,00
      "ProductID"="00001-296-0000007-05075"
      "DigitalProductID"=hex:a4,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,30,30,30,30,31,2d,32,39,36,2d,\
       30,30,30,30,30,30,37,2d,30,35,30,37,35,00,0a,00,00,00,38,31,30,2d,30,37,34,\
       31,36,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,34,49,a3,e1,b4,0c,65,79,03,e0,fe,9e,92,01,00,\
       00,00,00,00,02,19,9f,4a,c3,75,c1,0a,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
       00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,34,36,31,30,33,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,65,05,\
       00,00,77,b1,01,90,af,0f,00,00,17,0d,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
       00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,a7,a1,77,36
    2. Change the file extension to be .reg
    3. Double-click the file to create the keys
    4. Uninstall the SQL Server Management Studio(SSMS)
    5. Re-install the SSMS

    Now, we should be able to open the SSMS and connect to SQL Server instances.

    If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

    Thanks,
