    Unanswered: SQL Server Installation Fails on MDAC install.

    My SQL Server 2000 installation is failing. I am using the same install process, same CD's, same O/S etc. I have other servers that are running Win2KSP4 but think they were upgraded to SP4 a couple of months after the SQL Server install.

    Any ideas?

    ErrorMessage: Setup. Installation of the MicroSoft Data Access Components package failed. (-1).

    I'm going to ask our admin to re-format, re-install the O/S and SP3. Then install SQL Server and then upgrade to SP4, but this seems like a really dumb work-around.

    Thanks for your suggestions!
