Problem installing GoldMine 8 Premium on SBS 2003 (Possible SQL Related)

We are encountering a problem where during the install of our GoldMine 8 Premium on the server we get stuck at the SQL login screen. It does not appear to be able to see the local instance of SQL. There is Microsoft SQL 2005 installed but I am wondering if there is a conflict with the MSDE that would have been installed by the SBS 2003 setup?

From the SQL login screen you can click next as many times as you want but nothing visibly happens. It does however seem to create a MSIEXEC instance every time you click.

In my mind it appears to be a general SQL issue, not so much a GOldMine specific issue but I am not certain.

Any thoughts as to what to look for are much appreciated.

This is definitely the case if it's stalling during the sql part of the overall installation.

1. Uninstall MSDE (or SQL 2005 Express), taking care to first backup any databases you might need.
2. Reboot.
3. Install SQL 2005; restore any db's from step 1 that might be important.

Let us know how this works out for you.

The primary technical contact on this decided to just wipe the machine and start from scratch. So we did not get a chance to try your solution. Thank you for the input though.
