Default SQL Server 2005 Express Problem

Hello group,

I've pretty much used up my four-day weekend trying to get SQL Server 2005 Express to install, to no avail. The error message refers to conflicts with previous .Net versions, but as far as my Add/Remove Programs utility is concerned there ARE no other versions besides the freshly installed .Net 2.0.

Yes, I did once have 1.1 and 2.0 BETA installed, but I've since Uninstalled all associated iterations.

The directory "Microsoft SQL Server" is present and viewable under Program Files (seen using Windows Explorer), but again, Add/Remove programs doesn't see it. Does anyone know of work arounds for this?

Barring that, is there any way to work along with the book's exercises using Microsoft Access?

Thanks!

What's really annoying is that when you install SQL Express you get several things (MSXML 6, SQL Client, etc), but these all have to be uninstalled separately. The save you having to know what has or hasn't been uninstalled there is a tool to help. Find out more here: http://blogs.msdn.com/danielfe/archi...27/485863.aspx.

In addition to the tool suggested by Dave, you may also want to check out the manual uninstall instructions: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/ex...ort/uninstall/

If the tool says you need to uninstall something first, but offers you can continue, don't do that. Cancel the tool, and then uninstall manually the application suggested by the tool.

I accidentally clicked Yes, so it continued. It then uninstalled a prerequisite for another program that I couldn't uninstall anymore afterwards....

Hmm, works fine from here - I actually copied the URL straight from the browser window. Try doing a search for "SQL Express uninstall tool".
