Nico, could you please tell me which SGE version you are using?

You did install SGE as a 'root system' with no SGE admin user, right?
I.e. the $SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common/bootstrap file contains the entry 
"admin_user  none" and all daemons are started by root (or on Windows: 
the local Administrator), right?

I think there is a validity test that is too strict on Windows in this 
special case.

As a workaround please try to set the "admin_user" entry in the 
bootstrap file to a valid user name, e.g. "admin_user nico", to install 
the Windows execution host. Set it back to "none" after the installation.
