I have a SQL Express upgrade running from a config file with QuietSimple=True.
The upgrade freezes at the end of the "Upgrade Progress" screen.
It reads "Setup process complete" and shows "Database Engine Services" and "SQL Writer" installed successfully.
The Next and Cancel buttons are grayed out.
Any ideas why?

I'm facing a different issue. After installing SQL 2008 x64, I'm performing SQL SP1 unattended installation using quitesimple. This is updating the add/remove problems but not the sql db. "select @@version" is showing SQL 2008(RTM) and not SP1.
Can you please help.
