SQL Express MAP Install Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Installing SQL Express 2017 with the instance ID MAPS and Collation set to SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS.

    I reboot the Windows Server 2012R2 box and attempt to run the Map setup. The latest download 9.9.13.

    I get an error stating MAP was unable to update and check log. It doesn't tell you where to check the log. I found a few logs but not sure if they are what I'm supposed to be looking at.

    If I stop the SQL Instance MAPS and run the MAP setup again the setup asks if I want to start the service. It's like it finds the instance stopped and wants to start it. When I click yes the install fails. If I skill using MAPS instance it installs LocalDB and the MAP setup works. 

    I want to be able to configure a setup that will allow other Engineers easy access to MAP.

    Please advise.

    Thanks in advance,
