Getting .net framework 2 not installed, when setup sql server 2005 express, though framework 4 is in

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
My platform is windows xp professional sp3, on a dell pc.  I want to install sql server 2005 express edition. sql server 2005 express edition service pack 3, download page, published date 12/15/2008, states "Install .NET Framework 2.0 or later", note the "or later".  It also states windows xp. .NET Framework 2.0 download page states windows xp sp2, and I have seen forum postings about a problem when it is xp sp3. .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer) download page, date published 4/12/2010, states windows xp sp3. I download .NET Framework 4, i.e. dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe, and install it. I download sql server 2005 express edition service pack 3, i.e. sqlexpr32.exe, and run it, and it does some file extractions, and then message "The Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 is not installed. Please install before running Setup." Is this the expected behaviour?  Would I be better using sql server 2008 express edition? Other info: There was a .net framework 1.1 on the pc to begin with, but I removed it, and ran the sql exe again and still the message. There was and is a sql server desktop engine on the pc, though it's never been used.  Thank you for any help you can give with this. ----Philip

Install App that uses .NET Framework 4 and SQL Server 2008R2 Express (with Tools) - what .NET Framew


I am a little confused about how to install my application.  Written in C# using VS 2010 and targeted for the .NET 4 Framework.  It also uses a SQL Server 2008 R2 database.

In my installer I install .NET 4 Framework if not already present on the host machine.

For SQL Server 2008 R2 (with Tools) I understood I need Installer 4.5 and Powershell 1.0.  The install of install of 4.5 installer goes ok but requires a reboot.  The install of Powershell says it needs .NET Framework 2 SP2 - even tho' .NET 4 is installed.

I decide to ignore this and carry on so manually install SQL Server 2008 R2 Express (with Tools).  It unpacks and complains it needs .NET Framework 3.5 SP1!

My application has to deploy to a disconnected machine installed in the cab of a logging harvester so I can't rely on automatic wwindows updates.


To deploy my app with SQL Server 2008 R2 (with Tools) do I need ...

  • .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and
  • .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and
  • .NET Framework 4



I had presumed all I would would be .NET Framework 4 since it is "mostly" backwardly compatible.

Install time and complexity is HUGE is I need all three Frameworks.


Can someone please clarify for me?

connection to SQL Server files (*.mdf) require SQL server express 2005 to function properly.


I dont have the SQL EXPRESS installed instead I have SQL Standard Edition.

 I have two SQL Server instances installed.

2- UserLT\SQL2005 (this is SQL 2005 named instance)

But when i try to add a database to my VS website project I get the following error:

I went in Tools>Opetions>DataBase tools>Data Connection>Sql Server Instance Name (blank for default)

and changed the "SQLEXPRESS" to "USERLT\SQL2005".

But I still get the same error message. Any ideas how i can resolve this issue?

Go Mobile: Create Compact, Robust Mobile Apps with SQL Server CE 2.0 and the .NET Compact Framework


Developers have myriad options when it comes to creating solutions for mobile devices. One of the greatest challenges facing mobile developers is finding a compact yet robust local storage solution. SQL Server CE 2.0 promises to deliver on both fronts. This new release represents a tremendous leap in terms of features and performance over its predecessor. This article will review some of the platform and tools choices developers have today. The authors will compare and contrast the significant new features in SQL Server CE 2.0 with the previous release. Following that, they will build a sample app for illustration.

Net Framework 1.0 Error 1904 during setup mscoree.dll H-result 2146232576

I cleaned off all my .Net framework files with the .Net framework cleaner. I then started at 3.5, installed it, went well, installed 3.0, went well, installed 2.0, went well, installed 1.1, went well, then, tried to install 1.0 redistribution package for my windows xp home and it stopped at almost the very end saying ERROR installing 1.0 ERROR 1904 system32\mscoree.dll failed to register. H-result 2146232576. I tried renaming it and installing the 1.0 again but still get the same error. i tried using the IGNORE option, it said it installed but i know the mscoree.dll isn't working. i used the installer cleanup tool also to no avail. i deleted the URTTemp folder and tried a reinstall. This didn't work either. Anyone know what I might can do to get this corrected? I have not done anything myself in the registry. I have used RegCure and registry mechanic but Net Framework 1.0 still gave the error when I tried to install. Any help appreciated. I did read something about 1.1, 2.0,3.0 or 3.5 might have a newer mscoree.dll file and that night be why I can't register the one I have. I need the 1.0 version 3705 though as one of my programs uses it. Also, i am now not able to put any of the updates on my computer. it downloads them but they fail to install. Example, net framework 2.o service pack 2, net framework 3.5 service pack 1, and net framework 3.5 family update. Thanks....

Multiple XML files into SQL SERVER Express 2005

Hello. I am familiar with classic ASP and use this with MS SQL SERVER EXPRESS. I have an SQL table and want to import multiple XML files into this on a daily basis. I currently have 3 files, transferdata.vbs which loops through the XML files. FAQschema.xml which maps XML to the SQL database and test.xml shows the xml in the test file. If I run transferdata.vbs I get the following error "Error opening the data file" line 33 char 3. Microsoft Bulkload for SQL Server". My SQL table is called EnqOrd id (int), Debitor (varchar), PurchaseDate (varchar)     transferdata.vbs set objBL = CreateObject("SQLXMLBulkLoad.SQLXMLBulkLoad") objBL.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB; Data Source=XXXXXX\XXXXX; Initial Catalog=XXXX; User ID=XXXXX; Password=XXXXXX" objBL.ErrorLogFile = "E:\fuelsql\Teccom\error.log" ' Here is the path to your XML files Const path = "E:\fuelsql\Teccom\XML\" Dim Text, Title, oFile Dim fso, oFolder, oFiles, wsh ' Object variables Text = "Folder " Title = "XML Files" Set wsh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") ' Create FileSystemObject object to access the file system. Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") ' Get Folder object. Set oFolder = fso.GetFolder(wsh.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(path)) ' Get All Files Set oFiles = oFolder.

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) update is successful but repeats installin

  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) (update 1 of 1) This update seems to be stuck in a loop of installing, each time it successfull installs acccording to automatic updates. Then says it requires installing again straight away. This has been happening for 10 days now. I have tried a manual update from the website rather than automatic updates, no change. Any ideas why? Have posted in Windows update which is where I think the problem lies but they have suggested I post here also.
