Issue in executing PostInstall Script for FSIS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am seeing the below error while executing the Post Install script for FSIS .

    Standalone Host ESP-DEV-133 :  2010-09-02 18-17-26 Error InstallDb - Unable to find registry key for SQL Server program dir. FastSearch probably not installed


    Executed the below steps for Instalation:

    SQL server  (Express) installation :


    FSIS Install :

    msiexec /i SetUp_FSIS.msi /log Installation.log

    POST Install SCRIPT :

    .\InstallConfig.ps1 -action I -espSdkDir C:\FSIS\espSDK -secureStorageDir C:\FSIS\securestoragedir -serviceAccount Administrator -createGroups -createKeys -installKeys -enableCertificateSecurity -overwriteExistingHostDirs -overwriteExistingStrongNameKeys

    All steps were executed as per the documentation. I did the install using the Administrator userid. 

    Has anyone seen this error before? Any pointers will be highly appreciated. Is there a way to add more debug statements to the post installation script, so that I get more details like the key it is referring to it, so that I can edit the same using regedit.

  • This is issue was caused due to SQL Server 2008 Express R2. downgrading it to SQL Server 2008 Express solved it.
