MSSQL server installation

When I was trying to install MS SQL server 2005 today, I got the following error.

sql server setup failed to obtain system account information for the account.

It turned out to be caused by the classical problem, that you get, when you install the IIS before the .NET framework.

It can be solved easily. Just run the aspnet_regiis like this:

C:\\WINDOWS\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\”version”\\aspnet_regiis.exe -i
