setup.rll is either not designed

Got an error during installation of SQL 2008:

setup.rll is either not designed

The client tools were already installed, and I was trying to install the database engine. I got the error message late in the installation process, and had to reboot the server before uninstalling the database engine so I can try again.

Problem solved: Had to replace the setup.rll file in this directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\SQLServer2008R2\Resources\1033 with the version from the install directory resources\1033.
