how do i do a minimal client tool install to execute SSIS packages


I am trying to migrate our processing from command line based scripts and foxpro to SQL so I need to run the SSIS packages using dtexec. I copied the dtexec file and a few dll's that are missing to our production servers but i cant execute the packages. I dont want to install the full client tools (particularly managment/business inteligence studio) on our production servers due to the overhead and limited system disk space.

Can somebody tell me what the minimum install would be so I would be able to run SSIS packages using the dtexec or dtexecui tools? I would also like to install some of the other command line client tools like osql etc.

SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition Install fail due to .NET Framework 3.5 missing

I am attempting to install SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition on my laptop.  I already have VS 2008 SP1 installed and the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed on my machine.  When I run setup.exe, it fails saying the .NET Framework 3.5 installation failed and that .NET Framework 3.5 is required for the installation.  I obviously have this already on my machine.  What's the problem and how do I get this to install?  Below is the text in my SqlSetup.log file:

I don't want to remove programs/files that are being used by other programs. (I can't just try to install again because there is not enough room on my hard drive)

Which SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack to Install?

I have Windows 2008 Small Business Server Standard Edition.  When I scan for updates I get two different SQL service packs showing up, with the same KB955706 number.  I'm wondering which I should install, or if both, what order to install them in?  The first one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 The second one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 3 For applications, I have Blackbaud The Financial Edge v7.78 (accounting package for clubs) installed that uses SQL Server 2005 Express Edition for its database engine.  The new upgrade for this software requires SP3 which is why I need to know which service pack to install.  Also, please let me know if there are any tricks to getting the service packs installed on 2008 SBS Standard Edition.  I know sometimes registry settings need to be changed for SQL service packs to be installed properly. Thank you for your help.
