I can't install Sql Server 2005 standard. I receive an error 1619 installing Microsoft SQL Native Client..How do I resolve? I have installed this product four times on other servers before with no issues.

I've added a log file from the installation.
SQLSetup0004-FIRE2-SNAC.log

For kicks I installed the SQL  Native Client by itself. It installed fine.  When I reran the SQL Server 2005 install again, it hung up on the SQL Server Setup Support files.  When I tried to install that by itself, it also installed fine...however when starting up SQL Server 2005 install again, it still hangs up on the SQL Server Setup support files. It is almost instantaneous when starting the install process.  Note that I am running the install local on the machine and not remotely. The log file says the exact same thing as the log for the Native Client I posted above..with the file name for the server setup support files exchanged.

Hello,

Is the E drive a local or remote drive on the machine? I think the 1619 error usually shows up if you try to install over a Network connection (which is not supported).

Sorry, did not see your second post...I ran into an issue installing SQL2008 (where setup bombed) and the Microsoft KB artice basically said "try running it again" which I did and it worked. Sorry I don't have a solution for you.

I figured it out myself - It only like being installed under the root drive C:  Any other hard drives on the system caused the crazy behaviour above.

Closing question out.
