TeamViewer: Not ready. Please check your connection

TeamViewer proved to be a nice piece of software every now and then.

Have been using it since version 5 and up to it’s latest v12 incarnation, on systems spanning from Linux, OSX and of course Windows.

This morning thou, on a Windows 7 64bit system, the v12 of TeamViewer (which has been up and happy for like forever) refused to SignIn with it’s back-end; the error:

Not ready. Please check your connection.

It just kept throwing this message whatever I was doing:

  • reset the system
  • uninstall and reinstall
  • disable the Antivirus (Webroot secure Anywhere)

One think did help but I’m not happy about it:

  • turning off the system’s Firewall

Is the datastore flag /Scenario/GlobalFlags/AreProductFeaturesSupported set did not pass

That’s the error I got when attempting to install SQL Server 2008 R2 on a system running Windows 10 Enterprise x64:

Is the datastore flag /Scenario/GlobalFlags/AreProductFeaturesSupported set did not pass

An extremely easy fix is to run the SqlSupport.msi package, which is part of the installation media from which the SQL Server 2008 R2 is installed (just search it in there).

The SqlSupport.msi runs pretty quickly and on the face of things doesn’t do much.. well apart from fixing the above error.

Then it’s again back to the main installer, in order to catch errors in the act I’m running it like this:

.\setup.exe /CONFIGURATIONFILE=ConfigurationFile.ini

It did run almost normal and up until almost the very end where it stopped yet again with another error:

Condition "Is the user's scenario set to EditionUpgrade" did not pass

Steps I did to get over this second error:

  • run all of the below from an Administrator account
  • backup the user databases (if needed)
  • completely remove all SQL Server 2008 (and related) packages from Control Panel -> Programs and Features
  • backup the registry
  • reboot the computer
  • delete the following registry keys (using regedit): HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQLServer
  • go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and delete all the sub-keys referencing SQL Server
  • go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services and delete all keys referencing SQL Server
  • delete the SQL Server folder from: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server
  • reboot the computer
  • reinstall SQL Server 2008 R2
