I cannot get the MSDE (SP3) to install from an MSI created from merge modules on an XP Pro computer. The same MSI installs fine on other platforms (98 through to 2000).

The install seems to hang for 5 mins when it gets to Cnfgsvr.exe.

Code:
(this is an exerpt from the MSI log)
...
Executing "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn\cnfgsvr.exe -V 1 -M 1 -U sa -I "MYDATABASE" -Q "Latin1_General_CI_AS""
Action ended 14:51:09: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.
...
MDAC 2.7 (SP1) is installed.

has anyone else experienced this problem? Did you manage to fix it?

Thanks in advance

Jon
