WAS 3.5 installation problems

Hi, I really need help on this,
I installed WAS 3.5 quick install on win 2000. Installation seemed to be fine but when I try to start the server a DOS box appears for a second and then disappears. I am an administrator on the machine. The wssetup log gives the following message: "Silently Installed IBM HTTP Server to:C:IBM HTTP Server
ERROR: IBM HTTP Server Not Installed"
On checking the services, neither the http server or the application server service is there.
Can anyone help on this please.

Can you find anything in your C:\ drive? The default directories for IHS and WAS are:
C:\IBM HTTP Server\
C:\WebSphere\AppServer\

I really think that you do not have the administrator rights on your machine. That is why the installation is not taking place. Please check this up.

hi tony,
on my c: drive the websphere directory seems to be fully installed (size is approx 76 mb, over 2000 files), the IBM HTTP Server dir has been created but only contains a conf folder which has two files, admin.conf and admin.passwd.

Hi,
I have shifted to another domain and an another user ID. Now i am having this problem. I have yet to check if my system administrator has given me the appropriate rights. The administrator says he has given me rights as administrator of my Windows 2000 Professional system. Do i need any rights in addition. Any answers are helpful
Thanks.
