Silent installation of SQL Express 2005 SP3 (English) on localized European Windows Systems fails wi

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Dear Colleagues,  

We deliver C++ med. application with several prerequisites, including SQL Express 2005 SP3. All installations are flawless but!

The problematic installation is on German\French systems (this far it was Windows 7 32-bit, but I would expect it to fail on all flavors of supported Windows, including 64-bit, Vista etc).

SQL Server Express 2005 on localized Windows



SQL Express 2005 SP3 silently installs - by using command line options and switches - well on all English editions of Windows.

However, when it comes to German (localized) Windows 7 (I suspect that other German OS editions as well), SQL Express fails to recognize recommended SQLACCOUNT="NT-AUTORITÄT\SYSTEM"; simple removal of this option from command line - and silent install goes through but sets default account to Network Service, and we really need LocalSystem instead. Oh, manual installation goes fine with all configurations, including LocalSystem; unfortunately we have to use silent install for all our customers.

Similar problem detected while installing SQL Express 2005 on French Windows 7 - SQLACCOUNT="AUTORITE NT\SYSTEM" is not taken well by installer.

Please kindly recommend a solution for this issue

SQL Server Express 2005 Installation Fails when No Instances of Express Qualify


Windows update wants to install KB 2463332 for SQL Server Express 2005, however I have no instances of Express 2005 that qualify for the update. Please see summary of installation that follows.  I have manually installed KB 2463332 for the SQL Server 2005 instances and the update finished successfully - all instances of SQL Server 2005 have been updated, but KB 2463332 will not update the SQL Server 2005 Express instances. Why do my SQL Server Express instances not qualify? How do I get rid of this annoyance? Is there a registry entry that needs to be modified to keep this from recurring? Why is Windows Update trying to apply an update for a product with no qualifying instances? Can anybody please point me in the right direction.

Silent install of SQL Server 2005 fails when SQL Server 2008 is installed


We currently install SQL Server 2005 Express silently during our installation, using the following switches


We also attach a 2005-created database immediately after using the following command line (^ is a path concat operator in Installshield):

sqlcmd.exe -S .\\SQLEXPRESS -E -i \"" + svConfigPath ^ "SetupUapDB.sql\" -vmdfpath=\"" + svConfigPath ^ "UapCfg.mdf\" -vldfpath=\"" + svConfigPath ^ "UapCfg_log.ldf\" -o \"" + svConfigPath ^ "SqlCreateDB.txt\" -e

Note that we do not specify an instance name.  We ran into a situation where someone had installed SQL Server 2008 on a box using a default instance name and our install then failed.  I am considering 2 possible fixes, and have questions for both.

Fix #1: Specify an instance name.  Ideally this would install SQL Server 2005 Express side by side with SQL Server 2008, create a unique instance name and we'd be good to go right?  If yes, what is the accepted convention for specifying instance names?

Fix #2: Not sure if this is possible.  Can we detect if SQL Server 2008 is on the box, and if yes, apply our 2005 database to it instead?  In this case (tell me

Can this be any harder? SQL Express 2005 needed on a 64bit Windows 7 upgraded machine


I run a program, WinPakSE, that controls a card access system for our building. I just upgraded the computer it ran on from XP to Windows 7 Prof 64 bit. I checked with Honeywell and they said the program will only work in 64 bit environment if I installed SQL Express 2005 and ran WinPak in XP Mode. They sent me some instructions and the following link to download SQL Express 2005:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=220549b5-0b07-4448-8848-dcc397514b41&displaylang=en

So I did that and followed their directions. First thing I get a message that their are known compatibility issues and need to upgrade to Service Pack 3. Ok- I can do that. Next problem is it gives me this a warning message under ASP.Net Version Registration Requirement that says:
