1.1.6 Install Fail on Server 2008

Howdy from TX!

Trying to install 1.1.6 on development server as follows:
Windows Server 2008 Standard 32-bit (without Hyper-V), SP1
MOSS 2007 SP1
.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (KB951847) is installed

Running thru step 2 of setup, System Check shows fail on "The Windows SharePoint Services Timer is NOT started".  However, Windows SharePoint Services Timer (SPTimerV3) is running in System Control Panel.  We have recycled, as well as restarted and verified no SPTimerV3 errors in event logs.  SLAM install fails on that item and does not permit NEXT past that point in install.  We have successfully installed 1.1.5 on Server 2008 in a VHD but this is our first attempt of 1.1.6 on a physical 2008 server.

Thanks,
Bill C.

Bill,
SLAM uses the SharePoint Solution Installer, also found on CodePlex, to install its solution.  Others have run into this problem and it seems to be a known issue with the SharePoint Solution Installer.  Check out the discussion here: http://sharepointinstaller.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=27018

Hope that helps,
