Error: ACCESS DENIED on installation

Error: ACCESS DENIED on installation

Generally you would get error on:

>> During installation

>> when try to start the sql services.

>> After installation when try to access instance.

You would get “ACCESS DENIED” error.

To resolve this issue, you have to provide access at Secpol.msc and regedit to service account your sql server is running with:


Go to Security Settings-> Local Policies ->User Rights Assignment.

your sql service account should be included in following:


  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinHttpAutoProxySvc -SQL Server Service should have FULL CONTROL on this key.

Restart the machine.

Most of the time it should work.

Will try to write more on securities later
