Just downloaded MSDE installer sql2ksp3.

It starts unpacking to a folder I specify, then as soon as unpacking is done I get "**/sql2ksp3/MSDE/autorun.inf - access denied"

So everything stops and I can't install MSDE. I tried restarting, redownloading, nothing seems to help.

I have Windows 2000

Any ideas anyone?

Thank you

oh, one more detail. I dual boot (C and D), but mostly use D. It unpacks fine to drive C: for some reason, but gives "autorun.inf - access denied" on D: This is when I'm booted on drive D.

Try using the Winzip or Winrar to extract the archive.

I'm not sure why, but I've seen that problem before with other MS archives.
Thanks
