Hi Shaan,


Have you tried to install SQL Express 2005 manually from the DVD or ISO? Once done, then try the installation as per normal.

Also, any AV installed on the server, stop it, and try the installation again!

Hello Shaan,

   Also can you provide the Summary.txt file from the location C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Summary.txt




Hope this piece of Information Helps you... and if it does then mark this response as Solution....!!!

I think I am little confused ,while I hv downloded sql express from internet and run this ,it is showing sql server 2008 express is installing.

My question is :


1)sql server 2008 express is same as sql express?

2)if those are same,   installation  of sql express  2008 will  work?

I hv uninstalled AV and then try installing which not worked.

Downloaded sql express size is 104 MB.

SQL Express 2008 can also be used for Backup Exec Database repository. So if you have already installed it then you can use that. It is suported and will work.
