Install of SAP BI 4.1 - Error. CMS issue?

Hi,

I have been trying to install SAP BI 4.1 SP2.

I have carried out the pre-requisites - updated user priviliges, DEP Config, UAC updated, Anti-Virus Disabled.

I have also installed - Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64).

I saw a recommendation to install the following but all it did was run and do nothing - i.e. no completion icon appeared so not sure if it did installed. In any case this was recommended with errors when patching rather than full install. Not sure if this is even related but trying anything

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update (x64)

and

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update (x32)?

I still get errors when doing the install - I think it is related to the SQL Server being external rather than on the same box. Is there a way to test the DB for CMS has been setup ok?

Samples of the errors i get are below...

As I could not login to the CMS i restarted the BI Box. Then i login as admin and for some reason i can create folders but cannot delete them. I cant assign access rights to anything. Really weird...
