Please help - I get the following error message while installing SQL server
cnfgsvr.exe - unable to locate dll
the dynamic link library sqlunirl.dll could not be found in the specified path C:\Progra~1\Micros~1\80\Tools\Binn;,;C:\Winnt\syst em;C:\winnt\system32;C:\winnt;C:\winnt\system32\WB EM;C:\Progra~1\Symantec\PCAW~1\:C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\BINN
Setup failed to configure the server. Refer to the server error logs and C:winnt/sqlstp log for more information.
I had this exact issue. I tried the installation over and over again and checked all the log files as Microsoft suggests on their website.
Believe it or not, the way I got it to work was pretty simple.
All I did was stick the CD ROM in another networked computers CD ROM. Connected to the CDROM over the network and then installed. It installed with no problems.
Seems as though there may be a hardware issue with reading this CD with certain CD ROM drives.
I wasted an hour or so searching the log files only to come up with nothing and this took care of it on the first shot.
