Error installing EP6 on Windos XP

Hello, I am trying to install ep6 sp2 on a Windows XP machine. After I enter the PCD

host name , dbname and pwd details I am getting the following error.

Any suggestions to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

MS SQL Server version :Microsoft SQL Server 2000 - 8.00.760 (Intel X86) Dec 17 2002 14:22:05

Here are the steps for installation I took

Ø Ceated PCD using SAPINST. Also created WCM.

Ø Restarted SAPINST and chose to install Portal platform

Ø Gave a system name as “evrb” (it was insisting that it be 4 characters). It said that a local group “SAP_evrb_localAdmin” would be created

Ø Specified location of JDK and SAP cryptographic files.

Ø Clicked next and entered DB information.

Ø Clicked next and the error given below was generated

I have checked the local groups. Only the “SAP_EP_localAdmin” which I created manually is present and my userid is associated with this group.

    Hi,

    Windows XP is not supported for EP6 SP2.

    But here are 2 tips:

    1.Don't install from directory with spaces (like "Program Files")

    2.Run the analyzer prerequisite tests before the installation.You can get it from the central installation note.
