I'm installing SQL Server 2008 x64 developer edition on Windows Server 2008 x64. I installed the SQL Server 2008 many times with no issues.
But this time I have changed Shared feature directories as below:
Shared feature directory as D:\Program Files
Shared feature directory (x86) as D:\Program Files(x86)
and now ending up with the below error:
TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Setup
The following error has occurred:
Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.
Click 'Retry' to retry the failed action, or click 'Cancel' to cancel this action and continue setup.
Is changing the above directories will be the reason for the SQL Server 2008 installation failure?
Is this allowed to change the above directories Shared feature directory & Shared feature directory (x86) from default directories C:\Program Files & C:\Program Files(x86)?
I even tried the Repair option and then again getting the same error
