I am installing Beta3 of V7 SqlServer on NT4.0 WS SP3 with no previous
version of SQLserver resident.
During install I wanted to specify a different disk:\dir than the default
value. I was presented with an informational message stating the
target directory was not found. When I replied to create a directory
I was told the device was locked or read-only. It was not.
Since I had enough space on the original target directory I continued
anyway and had a successful install.
I searched for any other reference to this error and finding none thought
that I would ask for an explanation??
