Error 1603 while trying to install Workstation components for SQL 2005

I am trying to install SQL 2005.  As far as I know I have completely uninstalled all previous versions of SQL Server.  I am able to install all components except the "Workstation Components, Books Online, and Development Tools".  The install gets almost to the end then I get an error message, "There is a problem with the Windows Installer Package.  A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected.  Contact your support personnel or package vendor."  When I check the summay.txt, the error number listed is 1603.

I am installing from the hard drive; C:\SQLServer2005.  I have both the Servers and Tools folders with all the files.

Any suggestions?

uups, I see you have the 2 folders ... overlooked that...
still, that error is too close to the support note, and I found nothing else than that...

Yes I did.  And as you can see from my question above,  I have the install files directly under the root drive C in SQLServer2205 with all the files in the Servers and Tools folders exactly as the artical suggested.

did you eventually already apply a SP to the sql server installation, before trying now to install the client tools?

can you check the contents of the setup log files:
%Program Files%\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Files

if you find some more information there?

I have ran an update on the Windows Installer for SQL 2005.  I am not sure how to even go about finding a SP for the sql server installation.  As you mentioned earlier, the error is very close to the support note, but it is not the same.  

The last part of the summary.txt is
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks to everyone who looked at this question.  I have figured out the problem and no longer need help.  I had to run Windows Installer Cleanup and remove some old install files that were evidently did not uninstall when I uninstalled old versions of SQL.  I also removed the install file for the SQL 2005 tools while I was at it.  I then tried to install the tools once again, and this time everything worked out great.  Thanks again.
