SQL Server Home
Install Error SQLWriter - SQLDUMPER library failed initialization.

User(s) can reproduce this bug
During a clean install an error box is shown with the following message With the title "SQLWriter" and the message "SQLDUMPER library failed initialization. Your installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with. Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct
This does not stop the install even if you don't press OK.
I have looked a the log file but can't see anything wrong, and the server appears to be working.
SQL Server 2005 SP2 - Express Edition
Windows XP SP2 Professional

I am quite disappointed from Microsoft about its offering and persuading of its new application “Office Accounting Express 2008”. After quite a long time of installation the “Free Trial” a final message informs me that my current OS configuration is not able implementing “Office Accounting Express 2008”. Nice, really. And what now?
Why is it not possible to check in advance whether this application has a chance to be established on the user’s PC or not???? The users want to have a slender system. Thus, they will remove via “Add and remove software” the newly implemented SQL server 5 with the effect that the system answers with “SQLDUMPER library failed initialization” next time they re-boot. It follows an additional work time necessary only to bring the system to the state before. Really the “Free Trial” was an “Abject Trial”.

Thank you for reporting this issue. We have actually fixed this issue already in a newer version of SP2 (Build 3037). If you have questions please let me know.
