Hi,

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

Thanks

hmm why do you want 64bit executable's in 32 bit folder? Can you try to change the path to some other folder and then give a try?

Are you using a administrator account to install?
It seems like a restriction on the Windows side to me.

I have just had this error

"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."

This failed to work for both SQL 2008 R2 and SQL 2012 Express installations, I had previously disabled the Anti Virus which was Bullguard but had to subsequently completely uninstall the Anti Virus software. Once this had been removed the SQL software installed perfectly.
