I get this error when installing Microsoft Office Business Scorecards. I have a user myDomain/administrator, which is admin on the server (win 2003 server) and also a user in the SQL Server 2000 Ent. edt. In Enterprise manager, under Security/Logins myDomain/administrator  I have clicked in all server roles on this user  plus clicked permit access to all databases.

Any ideas what I've done wrong?

Please post the full error message (unless that was all of it).

Also, can you log onto the server as that user and create a database?

Yes, that was the full message from the little OK-box that popped up

I logged in as that user (windows authentication) into Query analyzer and ran a database creation script and it worked fine.

My next thought would be to run profiler at the same time as the MOBS install (I have no idea what that product is) and see what statement is actually passed to the SQL Server engine, and under what user context.  If it fails, take that statement from profiler and run it in QA.
