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
