I have run the ArcSDE Post Installation after installing the ArcSDE component from disc.
Most of the parts have completed successfully, however, when comes to the Software Authorization, a software crashed warning window is popped up, and saying the SoftwareAuthorization.exe is crashed.

I have attached the warning message. Please see the attachment.

Does anyone experience it before? Would anyone suggest me the solution, thanks!!!

P.S. I am running the ArcSDE component on Windows Server 2008.
