Re-installing SAP Business One

After removing and re-installing SQL Server 2005 and SAP Business One 2005 SP01 with no problems or error-messages I try to install SAP Business One 2005 SP01 again and get to the Installation screen with text:

"One of the following must be successfully installed prior to installation of Business One:

Microsoft SQL Server 2000 SP3

Microsoft SQL Server 2005

Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise 12.5.3 GA

IBM DB2 Universal Database 8.2.2 FP5 Express Edition

Server"

and cannot select Typical for installation on my notebook.

It seems that SAP assumes that the SAP Server software has been installed and the SQL Server has not been installed, while the Software list on the Configuration screen mentions the SQL Server, but does not mention the installation of the SAP Business One Server software.

How can I correct this situation? A remove and re-install does not change anything.

    Why are you trying to install SAP Business One 2005

    SP01 again if it has succesfully been re-installed, or am I missing something ?

    Have you checked that the SQL Services are running before starting the install ?

    Has SQL Server been installed with Mixed Mode Authentication or Windows Authentication ?

      Marc Mutsaers of Channel Concepts in The Netherlands suggested that the path length of the Autorun might cause problems. When I then, in stead of the Autorun, ran the setup-exe's in the client, server and server tools folders it worked all-right.
