Setup software exception

Hi all,
I tried to install sql 2005 Ent. on a windows 2003 x64 a/p two node cluster.
All works like expected until setup want’s to install sql server database service component. MsiExec.exe
exception unknown software exception (0xc000000d) occured in appl. @ loc. 0x7c437640 What went wrong here ?
Do you have any anti-virus or anti-spyware software installed?
Also check whether .NET based components are installed properly and see this KBA is any help. Satya SKJ
