Bug #: 449372 (SQLBUDT)
When you try to install a version of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 that has been downloaded from the Microsoft Web site, you receive the following error message:
Additionally, error messages that resemble the following may be logged in the SQLSetupNumber_ServerName_Core(local).log file:
Could not find a package to install on the installation media.
2005/9/30 10:5:19 Error: Action "DeterminePackageTransformsAction" threw an exception during execution.
Failed to open package to determine installing product code : 110
This problem occurs because a Sqlrun_*.msi file in the Setup folder on the SQL Server 2005 Setup media is corrupted. For example, the Sqlrun_NS.msi file is corrupted. Therefore, the Setup program cannot open the corrupted package during the installation and returns error code 110.
To work around this problem, download the setup media again, and then run the Setup program.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
