    Unanswered: Problem installing SQL2K on WinXP Home

    Hello there!

    I am trying to install MS SQL 2000 Server on Windows XP Home edition.
    I found in Microsoft that the above installation is possible.
    But when i run the installation, i am getting a black screen that is
    closes after a second. Nothing else happens.
    Any ideas how to troubleshoot this?

    Thank you

    Look for a log file named sqlstp.log. This is the log file created during the installation process. There should be some information in that log which might help you.

    I searched for the file you are referring but with no success. I cannot find such a file anywhere on my disk.

    Any other ideas?!

    Thanks for the reply.
