Cannot Install programs on Win2K Server

By shmaltz ·
I have a Windows 2000 Server SP3 that when I try to install any program on it, it doesn't work.
Right now I'm trying to install Norton Anti Virus (enterprise edition), and crystal reports server.
In norton it goes until after copying the files then it hangs. In crystal reports it doesn't do anything further than the CD Key.
This Server is running as a web server, everything else works fine.

inactive directory have you set a global domain policy which restricts users being able to add/remove programs?

Are you logged in as Administrator to that pc when you are installing those software.

What are the File System on those partitions u are installing on? NTFS? FAT?

Are those install trys generating any Dr Watson errors? We had a similar problem on our of our Win2KAdv boxes and it ended up being a corrupt WMI database. Check your event logs. In that is the case...I hope you have good back ups.

Have you tried uninstalling SP3??
