Setup SQL Server 2005/2008 express

Hi people, I'm trying to install SQL Server 2005 or 2008 express, but I'm getting an error:

Error inesperado en el programa de instalacion de SQL Server. Para obtener mas informacion, revise el archivo de registro de resumen de la instalacion ... Summary.txt. (This is in spanish).

When I check the summary.txt file, it doesn't have any help, the content is:

SQL Server Express 2008 Setup fails. Support Rule "Restart Computer" Failed

Hi, I have been trying to install SQL Server Express for most of the day now without any luck.  Whatever I do setup fails at the stage of Setup Support Rules, Rule "Restart Computer" - Failed.  Needles to say I have restarted (several times!) and I have tried downloading  and installing the "Advanced", "Tools" and "Basic" versions, all give the same error.  Trying a repair does the same.  I have been searching the net for an answer without success, any help would be MUCH appreciated. Further info: I am trying to install a stand-alone installation on to a single PC running under XP SP 3 with .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.  The PC did have some earler versions of SQL server installed but I (?hopefully?) removed all of these through Control Panel.  Before trying the first SQL install I installed Windows installer 4.5 and PowerShell 1.0 as per the Microsoft Instructions. Running SQL Server Configuration Manager results in an error (MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap in might not have been installed correctly).  A directory structure for SQL server exists in "Program Files".  Services MSC shows SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) as Automatic Statup (not running).  Trying to start this manually gives error 14001: "application configuration incorrect - re-install to fix" .......... Which is precisely what I'm trying to do.........:(

Windows 7, SQL Server 2008 Express & VWD 2008 Express Setup Problems

Hi I have Windows 7 Home Premium, and Visual Web Developer Express 2008 (which came with SP1) installed. SQL Server 2008 Express never worked - Windows 7 won't allow the Management Studio to be installed and VWD was asking for SQL Server 2005.  Looking on the web, I found advice to try the 32 bit version of SQL Server instead.  This would work with VWD, apparently.  I referred to these instructions (http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/3/163A851B-D956-42E9-B426-F5C0EBE6B654/ReleaseNotes.htm) and used the latest links and instructions, but I could not install SQL Server at all - apparently something to do with WOW64... This has been going on for a WHILE and I'm going nuts.  I am reluctant to uninstall VWD and start again, because I had to manually fix a few things, and now it's working...  PLEASE can someone tell me of a working configuration, I have read SO MUCH advice on this, and none works, including those release notes (unless I missed something) :(

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

How do I upgrade and overlay SQL Server 2005 Express with SQL Server 2008 R2


We are upgrading SQL server2005 Express to SQL Server 2008 R2.  We want to replace 2005 Express with 2008 R2 on existing system.  We have lots of questions about how to perform the upgrade safely and pull in our existing databases.  The existing database files are in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1.  Also, we'll want to use the existing instance name to avoid having to reconfigure all of the installed clients at our user's workstations.

Should we uninstall the 2005 Express version first?  Will that keep the existing databases on the system?

Or can we install 2008 R2 while the databases are live under the 2005 Express, or should we shut down 2005 Express first?

Will  2008 R2 use the same data folder or create a new one?  If it uses the same folder will it automatically recognize our existing databases?  If it creates a new one, I suppose we can use the migration Wizard.


Thanks for any help....

SQL Server 2008 Express w/ Tools Setup


On a Win 7 x64 Ultimate box, I am unable to install 2008 SSMS.  (Sql Server Express 2008 installed without SSMS from Visual Studio 2010 installation.)

I removed all SQL components and downloaded x64 and then tried x86 SSExpWT.  Both failed with the same error.   I realize this is not an Express forum but hoping I get some direction quickly.  Thanks in Advance.

Upgrade SQL Server 2005 Express 32-bit SP1 to SQL Server 2008 Standard on a 64-bit Server for use wi


When installing & configuring MOSS 2007 the default settings were choosen. So now when we try to access the SSMS I get a message "The evaluation period has expired. Please buy the product at the following url.". I do have a product key for SQL Server 2008 standard but when I am trying to perform a edition upgrade it doesn't detect the SQL Server Instance "OFFICESERVERS" so I am unable to upgrade the server. Because of the limitation in size we are unable to create new doc libraries or pages on the SP site.

Here are the details of the environment:

OS : Windows Server 2008 Standard SP1 64-bit

MOSS 2007 version :, Current License : Office SharePoint Server with Enterprise Client Access License

Database : SQL Server 2005 Express SP1 32-bit

sql server 2005 express and c# 2008 express connection problem



I can't get my C# app to connect to the DB.  I have tried numerous diff ways to connect.  The DB is there, I can get to it thru sql server, just not from C#.  I keep getting the following message -

Error accessing the database, a network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to sql server.  The sever was not found or was not accessible.  Verify that the instance name is correct and that sql server is configured to allow remote connections. Provider: sql network interfaces, error 26 - error locating server / instance specified.

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:

Connection to SQL Server files (*.mdf) require SQL server express 2005 to function properly. please verify the installation of the component or download from the URL: go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkId=4925

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?
