How to install SQL Server 2000 on a non-English OS
Posted on 2006-05-10
Our application bundles MS SQL Server 2000 merge modules in the installation. We're installing the desktop edition of SQL Server (MSDE) onto the local workstation. When we install on a French version of Windows XP, we get the following error:
Error: 1609. An error occurred while applying security settings. Users is not a valid user or group. This could be a problem with the package, or a problem connecting to a domain controller on the network.
I'm using MSI to install the application. I'm looking for a transparent installation, one that doesn't require the non-English user to create a user or group called "Users".
