Hi!,
I was installing SQL-SERVER 7.0 (Desk Top Edition) on WIndows NT Workstation.. and during installation it gave me a typical error.. the error reads...."UNABLE TO LOAD DATA NECESSARY FOR SET UP . THE DESTINATION 'SHORTCUTPRIMARY' HAS INVALID PARENT DESTINATION 'STARTMENUPROGRAMS'..

Please could somebody help me out in this..

Gee - that's a strange and interesting error. The only question I can even think to ask is whether you have administrative rights on the computer on which you're trying to install the program. If you're trying to do it on your own userid, I would also wonder if there was a problem with your profile.

If you're trying this while logged on to a local administrator account, maybe you could try creating a fresh account and profile.

Finally, if this workstation is on a domain, make sure thereare no policies set that would potentially interfere with a software install.

I ran into the same problem: Answer #1 looks right. I had to log on local w/ a local admin account and ran the install and it went fine... SFO
