Can't install SQL Server 2005 Management Studio

XP SP3 machine just reformated, when I run sqlrun_tools.msi it starts to run, then I get the error message attached.  When I click OK I get the message, "A valid destination folder for the install could not be determined."

Does anyone have any ideas?

Are you running it from a network drive?  Try copying the installer locally.

Run the setup from a local hard drive. Also make sure that the setup you are running is the "SQLServer2005_SSMSEE.msi"

I was running it from the DVD, then copied it to the local hard drive, same result.

The SQLServer2005_SSMSEE.msi, is that just the management studio?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'll try the cleanup utility, but what am I cleaning up?  Like I said, clean install, the only thing I installed before SQL was Office 2007.

Alright, looks like it worked, I ran the actual CD setup and let it install the initial tools, then canceled the setup, from here I could run sqlrun_tools.msi.
