I'm running the Vista Beta 2 (x64) and am trying to install SSMS.ÃÂ This is more or less a clean Vista install (had VS Web Express and SQL Server Express installed but those have been uninstalled).ÃÂ The SSMS install comes up ok and I can enter my name and company.ÃÂ It chugs along for a while and then fails.ÃÂ This is what is in the event log:
Product: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express -- The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 29506. The arguments are: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared\, chue, C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared\, chue
I thought maybe I had a bad install file, soÃÂ I cleared my browser cache and re-downloaded the SSMS install, but the results are the same.
As a side note, I am able to install the db engine (SQL Server Express SP1) without any problems.
Any thoughts on this?
