Error CRM 4.0 installation: Service msftesql was not found on the computer

When installing CRM 4.0 on a Win2K8 R2 x64 machine with SQL Server 2008 R2 x64 you might get the following error during the CRM 4.0 installation:
Service msftesql was not found on the computer

The cause of this problem is that the msftesql is the Microsoft SQL Server Full Text Indexing Service which has a different name under SQL 2008.

The solution for this error is:
  1. Run --> Regedit
  2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
  3. Rename the MSSQLFDLauncher Folder to msftesql
  4. Reboot the system
  5. Administrative Tools --> Services --> SQL Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher (MSSQLSERVER) and check the Start status
  6. Continue the CRM 4.0 installation
