Installation of Microsoft SQL server Native CLient failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • On the 1st stage of the installation process the following message appears;

    "installation of Microsoft SQL server Native Client failed because a higher version already exists"

    The machine has SQLSERVER 2005 Express on it (latest update) and I do not want to delete this as it is in use.
    I want to install an instance of the WORKGROUP edition on the same server and test it before I uninstall the EXPRESS version that is working fine.

    Any help appreciated!
