    further info. i am unsure if this wsus 3.0 was installed and then dcpromod to a dc. would that cause this? oi do know that server is a dc. wating to hear back from the tech when wsus was installed. should i just remove it and reinstall it or will i need to remove iis first then reinstall iis then uninstall wsus and reinstall.

    Re: cannot start the windows internal database

    thanks for the reply.

    if i understand you correct all i need to do is uninstall wid and not IIS.

    To uninstall Windows Internal Database
    1. Open a command shell.
    2. Call msiexec with the correct key for the operating system platform.
    On 32-bit platforms: msiexec /x {CEB5780F-1A70-44A9-850F-DE6C4F6AA8FB} callerid=ocsetup.exe
    On 64-bit platforms: msiexec /x {BDD79957-5801-4A2D-B09E-852E7FA64D01} callerid=ocsetup.exe
    Important
    The removal of the application may not remove the default .mdb and .ldb files, which will cause a subsequent WSUS 3.0 installation to fail. These files can be deleted from the %windir%\SYSMSI\SSEE directory.

    Correct? do i also need to uninstall wsus 3.0 from add and remove programs and check the boxes it gives you as items to additionally uninstall.

    Yes. In fact, you should uninstall WSUS 3.0 before performing the W.I.D.
    uninstallation

    wsus 3.0 sp1 rather.

    Re: cannot start the windows internal database

    This has resolved my issue. wsus 3.0 installed and wid ok.





    Try this from RegEdit:

    1) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server
    Edit the "InstalledInstances" value and remove "MICROSOFT##SSEE"

    2) Remove the "MICROSOFT##SSEE" subkey under
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server

    3) Remove the "MSSQL.2005" subkey under
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server

    4) Rename the following folder:
    \%Windir%\SYSMSI\SSEE\MSSQL.2005\MSSQL\Data to \%Windir%\SYSMSI\SSEE\MSSQL.2005\MSSQL\Data.old


    thanks for your help/
