Cannot install Workstation Components (Management Studio,etc) (ADD_LOCAL error) MSSQL

  1. I have Vista Ultimate (IIS Enabled), SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition
    (downloaded and ran the SP2 Update), Visual Studio 2008. VS2008
    installs no problem. When I install SQL Server 2005, I get an error
    when it trys to install the last part( Workstation Components,
    Management Studio, etc).
    I have tried FULLY, MANUALLY removing all SQL products and registry
    entries. I have used Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. I have tried
    Microsoft's recommended way of manually removing SQL Server 2005.
    If I manually run SqlRun_Tools.msi the error comes up right away.

    The error is:
    "A component that you have specified in the ADD_LOCAL property is
    installed. To upgrade the existing component, refer to the
    template.ini and
    set the UPGRADE property to the name of the component."

    Here's the Setup Error log:

    Any help?! Thanks!
