I've installed the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Performance Advisor on a few web servers with no problems and have found it quite useful. The servers that I've installed it on so far are on our internal network. We also have three external web servers. I just tried installing the performance advisor on the first external server and the installation didn't complete successfully. It partially installed and then the install hung. I tried to uninstall the software and reinstall it with no success. I've also tried doing a repair install which it recommends if you are having problems uninstalling the software. That didn't work either.
I found a potential solution in a newsgroup which suggested removing the registry entry for server performance advisor and then do the uninstall. I tried that but that didn't work either.
Has anybody encountered this type of problem with the server performance advisor? Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue would be much appreciated!
