When installing SQL Server 2008 on a Windows 7 machine, it experiences the following error.

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Setup ------------------------------ The following error has occurred:

Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.

Click 'Retry' to retry the failed action, or click 'Cancel' to cancel this action and continue setup.

Any suggestions on what this unauthorized operation might be?

Are you installing SQL Server Enterprise? Only the SQL Server 2008 Standard and Express editions can be installed on Windows 7.
