I downloaded sql2k8 r2 developer edition from TechNet, got following error when try to install on win xp sp3 machine:

The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2337.

Installation failed on sql engine, but ssas and client tools are fine.

The best place to go for installation support assistance would be the support forums


The installation forum is located at


There are a few discussions around this error code already which suggest that the installation media may be corrupted.

even doing some googling to the error code as well as event viewer/installation log errors should do the trick.
i faced problems with msi installer too old and not running as well as some anti virus issue.
