    Unhappy Unanswered: MSDE install problems

    hi ppl,
    I get the following an error prompt/box pops up during
    installation saying :
    "Service 'MSSQLSERVER' (MSSQLSERVER) Could not be installed. Verify
    that you have sufficient priviledge to install system services"
    -cancel- -retry- -ignore- buttons, this has now happened 4 times
    consistently.

    Retry does not work, cancelling and ignore end the installation but theC:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\... and subdir as well as
    registry entries are created.

    After this any re-install cancels (disappears) unless i manually
    remove C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\ dirs and registry
    entries. IF i do this then and try installing again then i get
    "Service 'MSSQLSERVER' (MSSQLSERVER) Could not be installed. ..."
    error again.

    the parameters im using are:
    BLANKSAPWD=1, REINSTALL=All , REINSTALLMODE=omus, disablerollback=1.
    and switches:
    /L*v MSDE_log.txt

    i have attached log file.
    Please help a stoopid newbie

    Re: MSDE install problems

    Please ignore this previous message, I seemed to have bypassed this old error, this old error only appeared when I don't specify an instance name.

    When i do now specify one, then I get this error:

    Starting custom action InstallPerfMon
    Registering performance counters from sqlctr.ini
    PerfmonLoad routine returned error code 267
    Action ended 0:18:23: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.

    I tried numerous things but the only stuff that works is when I make a C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Binn directory and copy sqlctr.ini and sqlctr.h into it (which i poached from an install that didnt rollback).

    But this results in the following error:

    Starting custom action InstallSQLAgentSecurity
    LoadLibrary failed for C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Mssql\BinnMSSQL$DONALD007\Binn\SEMNT.DLL. GetLastError() returned: 126
    Action ended 0:05:57: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.

    Does anyone know how to solve this?
    btw here are parameters

    REINSTALL=All
    REINSTALLMODE=omus
    COLLATION=Latin1_General_CI_AS
    TARGETDIR=C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Mssql\Binn
    DATADIR=C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Mssql\Data
    SAPWD=1111
    INSTANCENAME=Donald007

    This is a clean install of msde using sql service pack 3 on win xp pro.

    I have attached a copy of my log file that is generated when this "LoadLibrary failed.." error occurs.

    I also noticed that in the services i can still see a SQLSERVERAGENT even though this service is not started and the file it refers to has been deleted.
