Hi,
while installing sql server developer edition on a Win XP SP2 machine, i receive the following error:

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Setup
------------------------------

SQL Server Setup failed to modify security permissions on file C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Binn\schemas\sqlserver\2004\07\showplan\ for user Administrator. To proceed, verify that the account and domain running SQL Server Setup exist, that the account running SQL Server Setup has administrator privileges, and that  exists on the destination drive.

I am logged as administrator, and I leave the default settings in the setup.

Any comments?

try to set up sql server with the local system, if its successfull then you can change the account that starts sql giving that account admin rights on the server.

Please provide the information from the SQL Setup log which you can locate in the Windows directory. Generally the issue is resolved by granting full permission to the folder and subfolders for the administrators group. However the SQL Setup log can provide the actually error code for why the access is getting denied.

The XP machine is not a part of a domain. It has only one account (the administrator account), and this account is a memeber of the (local) administrators group.

Therefore, there are no folder permissions (by right clicking any folder).


This is what I found in sqlsetup_computerName_sql.log file:
Error Code: 29506
MSI (s) Product: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 -- Error 29506. SQL Server Setup failed to modify security permissions on file C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Binn\schemas\sqlserver\2004\07\showplan\ for user Administrator. To proceed, verify that the account and domain running SQL Server Setup exist, that the account running SQL Server Setup has administrator privileges, and that  exists on the destination drive.

Create a new folder on the root of C: while you are logged in as administrator. Can you check if you can install SQL choosing that folder for the installation path.

Hi,

under local users i found that the users "ASPNET" & "SQLDebugger" belong only to "Users" group. after adding both to the administrators group, the problem has been solved. One or both of them was the reason for my problem.

Thanks for your support .........
