    Question Unanswered: SQL 2005 Install Problem

    Folks, I'm hoping someone can help w/ this. I have tried to install SQL Server 2005 (32-bit, Std Edition) on two completely different servers and recieve this generic error on both (when attempting to install the Native Client):

    DEBUG: Error 2203: Database: C:\WINDOWS\Installer\fb54ddf.ipi. Cannot open database file. System error -2147024629
    MSI (s) (0C:84) [11:13:53:385]: Product: Microsoft SQL Server Native Client -- The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2203. The arguments are: C:\WINDOWS\Installer\fb54ddf.ipi, -2147024629,

    The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2203. The arguments are: C:\WINDOWS\Installer\fb54ddf.ipi, -2147024629,
    Action ended 11:13:53: InstallInitialize. Return value 3.
    Action ended 11:13:53: INSTALL. Return value 3.


    Can anyone help with this? Thanks.
