    Lightbulb Unanswered: SQL Installation error

    Hopefully one of you guys has run into the same problem I have....

    I'm trying to install SQL2000 on a Win2kPro b0x (client tools only of course), with MDAC 2.6. After going through the setup portion, it'll start to install "Microsoft Data Access Components", and then return the following error:

    "Installation of Microsoft Data Access Components has failed (-1)."

    No specifics, no nothing. I thought this might be an MDAC issue, so I rolled it back by installing Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 again, verified that it was successful, then ran the installation again. Same thing. So, this has happened with MDAC 2.5 and 2.6. Any ideas out there?

    When you say you ran the installation again - are you referring to installing sql server 2000 or the mdac installation ?
