Please help..............!
I couldn't find out the way to get rib of the error message when I used MSDE merge module in my project.  In my project I used:
                       1. SHARED.MSM
                       2. SQLBASE.MSM
                       3. SQLSVR.MSM
                       4. SQLSVR_RES.MSM
                       5. TOOLS.MSM
                       6. TOOLS_RES.MSM
When I install my project, right at the end of the installation, I got an error "Steup failed to configure the server.  Refer to the server error logs and setup error logs for more information".  I looked at the error log, it mentions that the Service Control Manager requested a stop....   Please help!  

Thank you very much.

Using the MSDE merge modules is really a pain. With the following infos you should get it to work:

1. Don't use the original MSMs from SQL server 2000 CD. They got a whole bunch of errors and are unusable.
2. With a bit of extra-work you can use the MSMs from Microsofts November 2000 Refresh-CD for SQL server 2000. There is especially one bug in Sqlsvr.msm, solution in MS Knowledgebase Q295193. Another error leads to a total file count number in Media table to be one to low.
3. Best solution: Use the new MSMs from "SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1 Desktop (English)" (documented in installsites Bugs in MSMs section
4. You have to include nearly all MSDE MSMs to get it to work. The only exceptions are:
- DMO.MSM and DMO_RES.MSM (only needed if you want Distributed Management Objects to be installed)
- REPL.MSM and REPL_RES.MSM (only needed if you want Replication abilities to be installed)
But it's good idea to include all, especially DMO helps a lot to configure MSDE after installation via scripting.
5. Further info can be found in http://www.installsi...stomizeMSDE2000.

Hope this helps

Josh Luth,
To get rib of the "configure error", you have to use three more merge modules.  The following are merge modules you need to add to you project;
                1. CONNECT.MSM
                2. DEV_SCM.MSM
                3. UPGRADE.MSM
Try it!  It worked fro me...........Good luck!
