I am trying to install SQL 2008 configuration tools on a windows XP sp3 machine.
when the install finishes I receieve an error message that states.
TITLE: SQL Server Setup failure.
------------------------------

SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error:

Unknown property.
.

------------------------------
BUTTONS:

OK
------------------------------

I was reading online and seen that this may be an issue with MSXML 6.0  I uninstall 6 and tried to reinstall and still recieved the same error.

Also I am unable to uninstall sp3 because it is imaged.

any ideas?

This might be due to the fact that you were trying to install incorrect sql server edition on XP SP3. XP doesnt support all editions of SQL Server. As such, please provide the edition name (enterprise/standard/developer etc) that you were tying to install. Also, post the exact error message from
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\Summary.txt file

Does it currently have SQL Express edition installed with client tools ?
I've seen clashes there before & may be able to help fix them.

it appears to install on sp3 but when I try to access the client tools I get an error message.

Connot connect to WMI provider.  you do not have permission or the server is unreachable.  Note that you can only manage SQL server 2005 and later servers with SQL server configuration manager.
