Setup initialization error: Source \SQL2000_SP3a\x86\Setup\Sqlspre.ini

You may receive this error when you try to install SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3. It occurs when the Service Pack 3 Setup program tries to copy Setupsql.ini to the %Temp% folder, but cannot overwrite a pre-existing version of the file that is marked as read-only.

If you receive this error, browse to the %Temp% folder on your system drive, and either delete the pre-existing version of setupsql.ini or remove the read-only attribute. Then run SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 Setup again.

Run cmd.exe and run "set temp" in it

Or directly run delete all
RMDIR /S /Q %temp%
DEL /S /Q %temp%\*.*

andrewbleakleyCommented:
go to the path that it showed you, in that folder you will see a file named "Sqlspre.ini". Right click this file and select delete. Then re-run setup.
