SQLServer2000 Installation;MDAC Failure

By marion.stokes ·
I am trying to install an instance of SQL Server 2000 onto a Windows 2000 Server which already has an instance of SQL Server 6.5 installed. I cannot complete the SQL Server 2000 installation because the MDAC portion of the installation fails. The message is; Installation of the Microsoft Data Access Components Failed (-1). I changed the install Media,Checked Logon ID's and permissions, Stopped existing SQL services and checked the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Do you have any suggestions?

Do you have to load SQL Server 2000 on the same server for 6.5?

What version of MDAC are you using? And what SP for MDAC?

Also make sure that any anti-virus programs are disabled before doing any installs of MDAC or SP's for MDAC, SQL etc.

Try installing MDAC 2.6 or 2.7 prior to running this SQL server 2000 setup.
