Not sure where to post this but hopefully here...
I am trying to install SQL Server 2005 on my laptop - It installed fine on a desktop PC but on the laptop I get
The SQL Server System Configuration Checker cannot be executed due to WMI configuration on the machine JBXEL Error:2147749896 (0x80041008).

I Have spent the last week Googling this and have tried everything to fix it bar re-install Windows (XPPro SP2)
I have run bat scripts, re-reged dlls and .exe files and much more but to no avail.
One poster mentioned that in his case it was something to do with the windows firewall.
I notice that under the advanced tab in my wirewall dialogue it says that the local connection is corrupt (or something similar)
Could this be part of the problem?
All help gratefully received.
