Dennis, Yes, disabling NOD32 doesn't remove it's process (ekrn.exe) and ekrn.exe is un-removable within the task manager. If I was to end process, it will start itself back up with a second, and I'm gona be in big trouble if I'm forced to uninstall anti-virus software to install Inventor.
John E, The harddrive is not substituted, compressed or mounted drive, just a 80gb sata2, NTFS format, and one partition.
Kevin, I couldn't find the log file your discribing. The log files I have are:
AcadmInv2009SWLInstall.log (file too big to attach)
AOEMView 2009 Setup.log (file too big to attach)
Autodesk Inventor Professional 2009 Setup.log (posted at top of page)
DWGVIEWRInstall.log (file too big to attach)
Inventor2009Install.log (file too big to attach)
I attempted to manualy install SQL 2005 from DVD2 and after it passed the 13 requirements (or so) it then failed.
Dennis, thanks for the tips, but alas, I uninstalled the antivirus, uninstalled everything SQL related (and updates) within the add-remove programs, rebooted and still fails trying to install ADMS (talking to our tech support now)
All of this....................... is so I can insert a screw in an assembly.
Very true. I had almost same problem on Vista 64 - all same symptoms except error was 1067 Finally abandon it and went to XP64. Some people suggested installing SQL 2008 instead of 2005. Never tried this.
It shows that the failure was caused by the SQL Server 2005 Express, but I'm not sure yet. Would you please try to copy the SQL Server 2005 Express Standalone installer to your local harddisk and check if you can install it successfully?
While you install SQL Server 2005 Express, please make sure to rename to SQL instance to "AutodeskVault". Of cause, please remember your sa password, which will be used to install the Inventor CC library.
If you can install the SQL Server 2005 Express successfully, then you can try to execute our Server installer.
Please let me know if you have any further question or problems.
