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

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

any reason why report builder should change the filter criteria @ runtime.

SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 Setup

I am attempting to upgrade a SQL Server 2005 install on a Windows XP SP2 machine and every time I run the SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 Setup, I get to the page for Authentication and click next.  Then a dialog pops up that says Authentication Verification: Please wait while your authentication is verified.  It hangs here for a few minutes and then eventually shuts down the machine.  Has anyone experienced this before?  I can run the SP2 ugrade on the machine just fine and it goes through the authentication step without issue.  I tried uninstalling sql server and reinstalling it to make sure it wasn't something with the sql server install.  I also tried to clean up space on the machine to ensure it wasn't a memory issue.  Then i thought it was something with permissions so I had another person with admin rights try it on the machine and the same thing happened for them.  What could the upgrade possibly be trying to check during authentication that would cause it to freeze up and hang? 

I checked the HotFix.log that gets generated and the bottom lines are
Registry: Opened registry key "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager"
Registry: Cannot read registry key value "PendingFileRenameOperations", error 5

SQL Server 2005 Setup


I have many different clients which need to have SQL server 2005 Express installed so that a named instance can be created.

Often on 64-bit Operating systems I get a message:

This message comes up during the SQL Server Database Services, Configuring components stage.

The status box shows:  Starting SQL Service: MSSQL$BRANDWISE (which is the named instance which is required to run the program I am attempting to install)

How to make my vs.net 2005 built application run on 64bit windows server?

I have a problem with my application, i can't make it run in a 64 bit windows server 2003. My App use to communicate to a finger print scanner device which listens to device events and automatically transfers device logs to a database.

This app use to run smoothly in a 32bit windows (my development env is xp sp2 using vs.net 2005 and .net 2.0 framework). But when i tried to install it on a 64 environment everything went wrong. The app returns a CLSID exception in which it can't find the specified reference.

I have already encountered and fixed this exception in a 32bit windows environment but it really freaks me out seeing my app stucked in a 64bit environment.

Any ideas on how I can fix my problem is greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance..

SQL Server 2005 Try and Catch Exception Handling

I'm pretty excited to see that there is some real error handling for T-SQL code in SQL Server 2005. It's pretty painful to have your wonderfully architected .NET solution tainted by less-than-VBScript error handling for stored procedures in the database. The big difference being the addition of TRY..CATCH blocks. Let's take a look:
