unable to install SQL Express 2005 CTP

P: n/a

Am trying to install SQL Server Express CTP on my machine (Windows XP
with SP1). I have downloaded the windows installer and .net framewrok
specified in the readme file(ReadmeSQLEXP2005.htm) and also followed
the steps given. but could not install express. I tried installing both
June and april edition.

When I tried to install april edition the below error window is popped
up when the setup is in progress during configuring "SQL Server
Database Services", But am logged in windows domain with admin rights
and also I tried running setting through a local admin user (not logged
to win domain) but still facing the same error.

"Please user an admin account when installing on XP SP1 Systems. Setup
cannot proceed with non-admin accounts on XP SP1 systems. Refer to the
product documentation for more information"

When I tried to install june edition the following error was shown
before any install window popped. I used the uninstall wizard and
removed .net framework and again installed framework (tried with
different version of 2.0 framework like *64,*86, IA64)

"SQL Server 2005 CTP Setup has detected incompatible beta components
from Visual Studio or SQL Server. You must run the build cleanup wizard
from the CD to remove previous SQL Server 2005 components and .NET
Framework components, and then run SQL Server 2005 CTP Setup again. For
detailed instruction on uninstalling SQL Server builds, see the SQL
Server 2005 CTP readme file"

Can you please help me resolving this issue

Thanks in advance

You probably send this question to the wrong group?
