SQL Server Setup failed to obtain system account information for the ASPNET

Trying to setup MSSQL 2005 Developer version in my new machine OS Windows XP Profesional SP3, when come to installation point, error message below appear:

"SQL Server Setup failed to obtain system account information for the ASPNET account. To proceed, reinstall the .NET framework, and then run SQL Server Setup again"

Under Add/Remove Programs, i have Framework 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0 installed.

What next? After surf around, here is the solution:

Steps:

1. Click on Start -> Run






2. Type in cmd and click OK





3. Command prompt screen will appear. go to"C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322" folder by using command cd C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322 and hit enter. Please refer screen below:





4. Type in aspnet_regiis -i and hit enter.




5. Screen below will be shown and dotnet user installed.




Try to install MSSQL 2005 again. It's work.


Problem solved.

To be current and without requiring .NET 1.1 installation... I suggest
cd \Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework
\v2.0.50727 to yield the following:

Start installing ASP.NET (2.0.50727).
................
Finished installing ASP.NET (2.0.50727).

This was just what I needed. A 30-second Google search to get to this post, 30 more seconds to follow directions, and I'm on my way. Excellent.
