I installed WSS 3.0 on a 2003 R2 server and everything worked fine. I had some other issues with the server and uninstalled WSS 3.0 and deleted the web sites it created.

After reinstalling WSS 2.0 the configuration wizard fails in step 8, creating sample data first time the wizard is run. After that it fails immediately upon starting with the following message:

Unhandled exception occurred in your application.....

I think you are trying to install WSS 3.0 on a partition "D:\" where the pre-requisite for the installation is missing. Please check along those lines

Are you trying to reinstall WSS V3 by selecting the the typical installation

If you are, please also remove the SQL server 2005 embedded Edition Service using following steps then resintall WSS V3.

For 32 bit:

msiexec /x {CEB5780F-1A70-44A9-850F-DE6C4F6AA8FB} callerid=ocsetup.exe

in general:

Start Registry Editor, and then locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

  • In the left pane, click each GUID. For each GUID that you click, look for a display name in the right pane that matches ¡°Microsoft SQL 2005 embedded Edition¡­¡±. When you see a display name that matches the name, copy the value of the Key named ¡°UninstallString¡±
  • Open a Command-Window (Start->run->cmd)
  • Paste the Copied string.
  • Append ¡° CALLERID=OCSETUP.EXE¡± the the end of the pasted text
  • Reboot.
