I am trying to install SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services SP2 on Vista Home Preimun and I recieve the following message: The SQL Server System Configuration Checker cannot be executed due to WMI configuration on the machine Seggerson Error:9896(0x80041008)

The prequisites seem to install fine, SQL native client and SQL support files, the message displays when I click Next.  The pops up during the System Configuration Check. After clicking OK on the message box setup exists.

It seems that WMI is corrupted on your machine. Try to run the following from the command prompt:

Mofcomp.exe %windir%\system32\wbem\cimwin32.mof
regsvr32 wbemupgd.dll
regsvr32 wbemsvc.dll
wmiprvse /regserver
