SQl 2005 Express will not install. Error: 29528 Access is Denied


  • I cannot get SQL Server 2005 Express installed on a 2003 Small Business Server.  I am logged in as an admin.


    The error: 


    Code Block


    Product: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition -- Error 29528. The setup has encountered an unexpected error while Installing performance counters. The error is: Access is denied.



    I have uninstalled all instances of SQL Server.  Rebooted server and tried again, but get same error.


    Any ideas?
