Can you delete the log and start again, all that stuff has datestamps in 2003 and since it appends to the log each time you try to install that stuff is probably the wrong end of the log and so pretty irrelevant.

Your right!! It was late, I didn't even look at the date. Ok, well here is the 'bottom' of the file and now it looks as if it's an MSDE 2000 error.

06-09-2006,08:57:47 :  Executing CRegistryOperations::EnumRegMultiValue

That's more useful. There may already be something using MSDE and set a SA password stopping BE from installing its own instance because it doesn't know sa password. Not that I'm an expert on MSDE.
