SQL 2008 reporting services install fails with error 'input string not in a correct format'

SQL 2008 reporting services install fails with error 'input string not in a correct format', see attached install summary. Why? How to solve?

I'm installing SQL 2008 standard on a 64-bit server 2008 machine that is part of a SBS 2008 domain.

I found somewhere on Technet that kb 960127 might cover this, but I don't find that kb article. Who can find that?

I found this ( http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlsetupandupgrade/thread/c9cb944d-6264-4530-9e00-ee92da3e939f/ ):

Got this one figured out.  The performance counters were corrupted.   You can see this by opening perfmon and noticing a bunch of numbers instead of the actual counters themselves.
In order to fix (or you might want to check before you install), run:
c:\windows\system32\lodctr /R
This will reload the performance counters

 This worked.
