SQL Server 2008 RC0 installation problems

I am trying to install SQL Server 2008 RC0 but the installation is failing giving error message as "Access is denied".

The installation was performed on a new system having no previous SQL database installed.All the other components of SQL server 2008 were installed except the Database Engine Services.

System Configuration:
OS: Windows XP
Hardware : AMD x64

Log file error:

Re: SQL Server 2008 RC0 installation problems

It looks like you don't have access to DCOM. Did you install this as an administrator?

When you run the install, right-click on it and run as adminsitrator.

Re: SQL Server 2008 RC0 installation problems

Hi Hostrunway,

 

Thanks for thr reply.

Yes i run it as adminstrator.

After the unsuccesful attempt to install sql server , I had deleted registry entries from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SOFTWARE->MICROSOFT->MICROSOFT SQL SERVER.
