If you are trying to install Exchange 2000 it won't do imho, because that
version of Exchange needs an Active Directory to install properly.

fails in the same way...
Remember: the accouunt *must* have the right to _logon as a service_!

> Unfortunately Exchange can not be installed using a local sam Account or
even the localSystem Account....
Again: which version of Exchange you are using (or trying to use) ?

I hope this will help you.

Just to please you
