I am attemptint to upgrade our current Sharepoint site from 2.0 to 3.0. To do this I have setup a new server from scratch. It is a virtual server with 2GB or RAM allotted running Windows Server Standard 2003. I have installed Sharepoint 2.0 with no issues. I installed SQL 2005 Express (after a few attempts to upgrade using the MSDE it loads) and have all databases loaded on that SQL instance. I have restored a backup of our sharepoint site to this new server and it works perfectly... no issues at all. It is actually much better than I expected. Anyway, my next step os to run the Prescan.exe prior to trying to do the Upgrade In-Place option. No matter what I do the prescan fails with the following error:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

   at Microsoft.SharePoint.PreupgradeReport.Scan.InitLogFiles()
Failed>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This error occured when I originally installed with Sharepoint just creating the default MSDE instance. I figured it was some sort of SQL security issue so I installed SQL 2005 Express and ensured that the ID I am using is a SysAdmin in SQL (it is). This is a completely clean install of everything and I am stuck. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Does the user that you are doing the prescan with has access to all the content on the SharePoint site?

I have tried with both my local administrator and domain administrator account to no avail. This account does have access to all Sharepoint conent unless I am missing something.
