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 problem."
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.

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”.
