SQL Installation Failed

Posted on 2010-01-05
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I am installing an application that also installs an instance of SQL 2005. Usually this is an "accept all defaults" kind of installation. For the first time in many many installations, I am getting an error when SQL goes to install SP2. When trying to Authenticate, Windows is the default method and has always  just worked. For the first time ever, I am getting an error.  I have attached a copy of the error. Like I said.. Usually this install runs pretty much unattened.

    You need to have administrator rights to the local computer to start the SQL instance.  Log into the computer with the appropriate account.

    Add SP2 as a stand alone and retry.
