Express install fails with encryption error
I'm having trouble installing SQL Express on a machine.
The machine already has SQL Developer and SQL 2000 installed (SQL 2000 is
installed as a named instance)
When I try to install Express (as a named instance) I get an error when it
tries to start the engine.
The error is "An error occured during encryption"
I have found a KB 920114 which talks about the Protect folder, but this
folder does not even exists, when I create it and assign it the necessary
permissions I still get the same error.
