I'm trying to install SS 2008 Express with Advanced Services and am having a problem with the Instance Configuration.
The default instance is preset with an InstanceID of SQLExpress. This gives me an error that says:
"The instance of SQL Server already has an instanceID of '1' that is different than the specified Instance ID 'SQLExpress'. Specifying more than one instance ID for the same SQL Server instance is not supported."
Then in the area that shows the installed instances it has: Instance="SQLEXPRESS", Version "9.2.3042.00", InstanceID="MSSQL.1".
I think the instance that's already installed is the SS 2005 express that was installed with VS 2008. It looks like the Version of the SS 2008 I'm trying to install is 10.
I've tried different things but haven't been able to get this to work. I also tried the Named Instance but got the same error.
Can someone help me understand what I need to do to get this installed?
