SharePoint 2010: Failed to register SharePoint Services on configuration wizard

When i try to run SharePoint configuration wizard after install SharePoint 2010 beta, the wizard application throw a timeout exception and the SharePoint configuration steps aren’t done.

To resolve this problem you need to go to the Registry Editor and delete SPSearchService entry.


  1. Go to the Start Menu and then click Run.
  2. Write regedit on Run box.
  3. Navigate to the SharePoint registry entries on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web ServerExtensions\14.0\WSS\Services.
  4. Delete SPSearchService entry.
  5. Run the SharePoint Configuration wizard again.
