I was trying to setup Sharepoint “v3” which is part of Office 2007; the Beta 1 Technical Refresh installs without a problem, but when I try and configure Sharepoint it fails in Step 2 and I get the error shown below. You can click on the image to see the full size.

However, when I trawl through the log file, I did find a few exceptions, a couple of which are listed below. The only reason the font is small on those is so it would fit and render fine in here. You can copy and paste that in notepad or something and see if in a bigger font; alternatively you can download the log file (see the end of this posting).

I think I have everything outlined in the installation document for the Beta 1 Technical Refresh. BTW, I have this on Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition with SP1 and all latest patches. SQL Server 2005 Dev. Edition and VS.NET 2005 Professional Edition.
There are a couple of more exceptions along the same line - if it would help I have upload the full log file which you can download here (53 kb). But the real question is any idea what is broken and why?
