[FIX] BizTalk 2004 - Failed to generate the master secret (error code 0X80070005)
The BizTalk Server 2004 installation fails on XP SP2 with an error message
that doesn't give much of a clue as to what the problem is: Failed to
generate the master secret (error code 0X80070005). As Marco
says in his post, it's easy enough to Google it if you know that XP SP2
caused the problem, but otherwise it's not easy to figure out.
got the fix here:
The install failure is: An unexpected error occurred while
configuring the Single Sign-On server. The service cannot be started, either
because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
