Service msftesql was not found on computer ‘server_name’.The specified service does not exist as an installed service (MS CRM 4.0 installation error)

while installing ms crm 4.0 i got the below error: Service msftesql was not found on computer ‘server_name’...

so the solution is as follows...
to do this you must have admin privilege
take a back up of the keys...
Run (window + R) > Regedit
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
- Rename MSSQLFDLauncher Folder to msftesql
- Reboot System
- Administrative Tools > Services > SQL Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher (MSSQLSERVER) and Check START Status
if you have SQL as named instance, then u will get the error "Service msftesql$instancename was not found on computer ‘server_name’.
sos you have to Rename MSSQLFDLauncher$instancename  Folder to msftesql$instancename .
this is the trick....make sure other application(if used the same DB) does not affected....
