I am posting this to hopefully help someone else that encounters the same issue in the future...
Server:ÃÂ SBS 2003 Premium, with exchange and with all service packs/patches applied.
Server migrated from: OLDSERVER
This server was migrated from another SBS 2003 on different HW following the instructions provided by microsoft.
The oldserver had exchange and sql 2005 installed on it.
The new server has Office Accounting 2005 installed, but I don't think that matters...
I am trying to install SQL 2005 from the SBS2003-R2 DVD onto the new server, and get the following error:
TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Setup
SQL Server Setup failed to modify security permissions on registry key SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib for user Administrator. To proceed, verify that the account and domain running SQL Server Setup exist, that the account running SQL Server Setup has administrator privileges, and that the registry keyÃÂ exists on the destination drive.
