I get through most of the installation setup process and then I get hit with this error message:

TITLE: SQL Server Setup failure.

SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error:

There is an error in XML document (1, 2).

Error code 0x84B10001.

Installing the mentioned updates does not fix this for me. Is it possible to re-open?

i got it working now. i had to install a few non-essential windows xp updates. one was the root certificates update and the other was the Update for Windows XP (KB951618).

after installing those updates, sql server 2008 express installed properly.

OK. i've uploaded the entire Log file as a zip file. hope that helps.

i'm eager to begin using SQL 2008 Express.

Please attach your setup logs from %program files%/microsoft sql server/100/Setup Bootstrap\Log so that we may diagnose the failure further.
