Unchecking "MSDE2000Feature"

When I:
1. create an "InstallScript MSI Project"
2. add the MSDE 2000 merge module, whilst checking "Core functionality", "Data Management objects" and "Allow installation to proceed with a blank sa password"
3. install with the default options

Then everything is fine.

But, whilst I am installing, if I un-check the "MSDE2000Feature" then I get a 1603 error - "Fatal error during installation".

Does anyone have any ideas about this problem.
Many thanks,

Try running the install with verbose log mode
msiexec /I "msi.msi" /L*V c:\msilog.txt

This is a known problem with the MSDE modules. See the Bugs Bulletin here on InstallSite.
