Internet Connection Wizard faults with event ID 1000

I've just installed SBS 2003 standard on a new server. CEICW fails to run. it gets to the initial screen, I hit next, nothing happens after that except for the following App Log entry:

Event ID: 1000
Category (100)
Type: Error

Fautling application icw.exe, version 5.2.2651.0, faulting module unknown, version, fault address 0x000b160

I have tried looking for virtual directories with commas. No dice. I have also tried replacing wizardui.dll and 2 copies of wizchain.dll with copies from a different SBS install. No luck there either. I'm running out of time, and out of ideas.

Hi davefeete,

Honestly, if you've JUST installed the OS, I'd reinstall the entire thing rather than monkeying around with troubleshooting this problem.  If the server had been installed for awhile, I'd recommend just reinstalling the SBS Server Tools (through add/remove programs > Windows Small Business Server 2003).  But this could be indicitave of an overall faulty installation, so it would be best to reinstall.

This problem seems to be unique.

I would also try to replace the icw.exe
run the service pack

If that does solve the problem I would considere TechSoEasy's Suggestion.

I had that same issue while trying to get Remote Web Workplace working, it was telling me to run the Firewall Configuration from the to-do list (which wouldn't run and gave me the same error you had).  In order to install SBS on the hardware in the server I had to use nLite to add SP2 onto the SBS 2003 CD.  Anyway, I was able to get RWW working by running "NETFXSBS10.exe" found in windows\microsoft.net\framework\ ran it and now RWW is working.    Maybe this helps someone.
I know this issue is old but I had the same issue on an SBS 2003 system and added C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Networking\ICW\icw.exe to the Data Execution Prevention List and was able to get past the first welcome page of the wizard.
