trying to install sql server2005 on a windows 2003 server box.
getting msg below at the sql server .ÃÂ i looked at other posts on trying to uninstallÃÂ SQL Native Access Client and norton antivirus.ÃÂ i could never find the snac on the add - remove programs and this server does not have a virus protection program yet.
here's the history of the installs on the server:
wanted to test a 2005 upgrade so:
ÃÂ 1) installed sql server 2000 then sp4 then restored some databases to it - all OK
ÃÂ 2) tried to upgrade to sql 2005 but ran into problems and left it at that.
had a disk drive crash on the d drive so lost the installs but not the operating system
when the drive was replaced, left alone for a while
then wanted to test a straight 2005 install
ÃÂ 1) removed the broken 2005 attempt
ÃÂ 2) removed the 2000
ÃÂ 3) installed 2005 and got the error on the subject line:
