VS2005 team system: SQL Server 2005 Express Edition install return code 28062 RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my current machine I installed and also uninstalled the following releases:
    VS2005 beta2
    VS2005 RTM(from PDC)

    I am now installing the MSDN VS2005 team system and it fails on the SQL Server Express edition as shown in the following log snippet.  If someone could give me a workaround to this problem, or guidance, I would appreciate it.

    From the installation log:

    [12/07/05,09:38:33] Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition x86: CreateProcess launched with cmd lined:\vs\setup\..\wcu\sse\SQLEXPR32.EXE "d:\vs\setup\..\wcu\sse\SQLEXPR32.EXE" -q /norebootchk /qn reboot=ReallySuppress addlocal=all instancename=SQLEXPRESS SCCCHECKLEVEL=IncompatibleComponents:1;MDAC25Version:0 ERRORREPORTING=2 SQLAUTOSTART=1 /watsongenman=SQL???.mft

    Thx.

  • QuanTon,  (and anyone else that is experiencing this problem)

       After waiting for a response to my question, I decided to download the SQL Express Edition and INSTALL IT SEPARATELY from the VS2005 install in the hope that it would provide a better error message and it did:

    MS SQL Express cannot install to a compressed folder - either uncompress the folder or choose a new location. 

       Since all of my drives are compressed, I created a new un-compressed folder and the install went correctly. 

       This error SHOULD HAVE been presented during the installation process.  All I got was a failure icon for SQL Express.

  • Take a look at the SQL logs under \program files\microsoft sql server\90\setup bootstrap\logs and look at the summary file.
    It'll give you more information why it failed.
