Guys,

I am re-building SQL Server 2000 on Windows 2003 Server Service pack 1.

Here what I did.

1.UN-INSTALL SQL2000 SERVER
2.UN-INSTALL REGISTRY ENTRY FOR SQL AND SQL AGENT
3.RESTARTED SERVER
4.INSTALL SQL 2000 STANDARD ADDITION
5.INSTALLED SP3A
6.RESTARTED SERVER
7.INSTALLED SP4 FOR SQL SERVER

SQL Server is running fine.
When I go and start SQL AGENT, it generates that message "%1 IS NOT VLAID 32 BIT APPLICATION"

Here is system Log

"The SQLSERVERAGENT service failed to start due to the following error:
SQLSERVERAGENT is not a valid Win32 application. "

Any ideas how to resolve this? Many Thanks in Advance.

Alright.
I got it sorted.
This is Microsoft Craziness.
SP4 OR SOME OTHER PROCESS Created a FILE named "Program" under my root folder.
Now there are two folders/Files under my root folder.
1. Program (File)
2. Program Files (Folder which have core SQL Installation)


This is all causing issues for that service to start.
I changed the name of "Program" file and All works Fine.

SQLSERVER AGENT SERVICE SHOULD need to be quite intellegent to understand that differance.

If somebody have any logical reason of that issue, then please post it here for everybody knowledge.
Thanks all for reading.
