I tried to install the SLK.

When running the EnumSolutions, It shows following info:

<Solutions Count="1">
<Solution Name="sharepointlearningkit.wsp">
<Id>00057001-c978-11da-ba52-00042350e42e</Id>
<File>sharepointlearningkit.wsp</File>
<Deployed>FALSE</Deployed>
<WebApplicationSpecific>TRUE</WebApplicationSpecific>
<ContainsGlobalAssembly>TRUE</ContainsGlobalAssembly>
</Solution>
</Solutions>

I already tried to re-install by deleting the deployment job in the Sharepoint Central Administration as suggested in numerous posts on this forum. However the problem remains.

I checked the event viewer of Windows and found underneath logging:

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Installation is done on a Windows Server 2003, Sharepoint Services 3.0 Beta 2. On a VPC environment.

How can I move to a successful installation of the SLK?

Additionally I found following lines in the log file of the installation:

Found the solution myself: I needed to disable the domain controller on the server where I installed the SLK on. This solved the problem. See also thread: http://www.codeplex.com/Project/DisplayThread.aspx?ProjectName=SLK&ForumId=189&ThreadId=426
