BDS 10 Upgrade Issue

Having an issue with BDS 10 install.


Basically I load the installer, it takes me directly to the install path page and i cant get any further. I get the error "The Installation path is too long. You must specify an installation path that is 67 characters long."


Can't change the path, greyed out. I hit back and it just wants my info and then brings me back to that page.


This is a Windows SBS 2008 server running BESX 5.0. BES is installed with all the default paths etc.



Anyone else run into this issue? I really dont want to uninstall BESX.

BDS and BES can't coexist on the same box.
