Installation Trouble - Cannot process request because the process (1072) has exited RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi friends,

    While facing an error "Wait on the Database Engine recovery handle failed", upon an attempt to add an instance, when I uninstalled & attempted to reinstall SSMS 2014 I am facing "Cannot process request because the process (1072) has exited."

    Any reason and way out?

    Using Windows 8.1

    Thanx in advance

  • Thank God!

    Finally found the solution at:

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/24364.sql-server-troubleshooting-could-not-find-database-engine-startup-handle-error-during-installation.aspx

    It was either because of:

    1. Removal of leftover directories manually;
    2. Removal of Registry Keys manually; or
    3. Use of NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM.

    that I did finally succeed!

    Thanx Microsoft!!!
