Cannot Install SQL Search

ArrowTomArrowTom Posts: 2 New member
Hello,

I cannot install SQL Search. When I try, it gets to 99%, hangs for a while, and then returns the following error.

1 Item could not be installed.
- SQL Search 3.6
MSI returned failure code 1603: Fatal error during installation.
Service 'Redgate Client' (RedGateClient) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services

I've been searching for a while, but I keep getting results for users with other products having this issue after it has already been installed, not during in the installation.

    It turned out that even though my account was set to administrator, I did not have admin permissions. Corporate IT fixed the permissions and I was able to successfully install SQL Search.

    I got same 1603 issue during installation of SQL Search. Nothing above helped me. The only workaround that worked for me was kill installation before it rollback the changes (please consider this workaround only if you have no other choice).

    Workaround Steps:
    1. Restart Windows
    2. Start installation and confirm that it is still failing with 'Failing to start service' error message.
    3. Open Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc).
    4. Start installation again and wait till you see message "Starting service".
    5. In Task Manager find 'SQL Search' installation task and kill it.
    If you would be fast enough and kill task before rollback, you will have 'SQL Search' in your Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.
