Command Line Run

I'd like to run this command from the command line:

Net localgroup Administrator myuser /add

How do I do that from the installer?

I tried Run Program with a blank in the Run Program: area, and the entire command in the command line parameters box.

It doesn't work...

I think I found the solution.

Don't know yet

I don't know yet if this fix actually works, but I do have good news.

It doesn't break installs on XP SP3 computers that normally install SQL fine. So, at the very least it doesn't appear to be doing any harm.

If it is actually helping remains to be seen.

Working With Microsoft now

I am 5-6 hours into support with Microsoft. It took about 4 hours to get them to admit that there was an issue. Now that they have, and I am waiting back for a fix. I have a feeling that they'll tell me that they will have one eventually, but I'm hopeful that I can get something out of them. Since X...
