    Post Unanswered: MSDE Fails to install on Win2k Server (Application Server Mode)

    Am trying to install the latest version of MSDE on a Windows 2000 (SP3) server running in Application Server Mode. Installation almost completes then stops and rolls back without warning or error message. Can't find a reason for this and previously posted solutions (e.g. install latest MDAC) don't seem to work. So off to the forums for help.....what am I missing??? The verbose log is attached (as it is too long).

    What you see is what I got.....however last night while doing some work from home I discovered the answer I was looking for in MS KB317268 - in a nutshell you have to install it from the console and can't install it as admin from a terminal session....don't know why - but it sure is a royal pain.....
