    Unanswered: MSDE 2000 SP3a install failure

    I am getting an error when installing SP3a of MSDE. I get the error message "The instance name specified is invalid." This is the first SQL database installed, so there is no instance name. I have tried "default" and "MSSQLSERVER" as instance names without success.

    your help is appreciated.

    the instance name is "MSDE"

    Why is this not in the setup documentation?
