Installation Problem - SQL Server 2005
Posted on 2006-06-14
We are experiencing an error when installing the SQL Server 2005 Desktop.
Here's the error from the dialog: The SQL Server System Configuration Checker cannot be executed due to WMI configuration on the machine <<MACHINE_NAME>>, Error: 2147942405 (0x800700005).
I have seen other postings, and errors on the web relating to BITs, MOM and SMS experiencing this issue on server side installs, but not on desktops. The machine in question is 32 bit Windows XP SP2, with 2 GB of RAM and plenty of disk space, Pentium 4 CPU and the user is an administrator. The SQL Server is running as a local system account.
The machine is a desktop already running a SQL Server 2000 Server deployment.
