  • SQL 2008 Express - error: xml document, & error code 0x84B10001

    I am trying to install SQL Server 2008 Express on Windows 7 64 bit OS.
    The pc is not part of a domain.
    Another program (ProNest 2010) uses SQL as its database, this program installs correctly.
    Both installs are done using the Administrator account.
    I used the web installer to D/L and install SQL, the installation appeared to run correctly right up to the very end, then generated the error (error: xml document, & error code 0x84B10001) and backed out.
    Next I searched MS Knowledgebase to check which version of SQL to install with Win7 64 bit. MS pointed me to SQL Server 2008 Express SP 1, I downloaded it (SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe) manually and tried again with the same result.

    I have googled the error but was not able to find any relevant information.

    Does anyone know if this is a known problem with SQL and Win 7 64?

    I know this set up works with Win 7 32 bit, I have done it myself but this is my first 64 bit installation.

    Am I using the wrong download?
    Note: SQL Server 2008 Express includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

    SQLEXPR32_x86 is a smaller package that can be used to install SQL Server 2008 Express onto only 32-bit operating systems.

    SQLEXPR_x86 is the same product but supports installation onto both 32-bit and 64-bit (WoW) operating systems.

    SQLEXPR_x64 is a native 64-bit SQL Server 2008 Express and supports installation onto only 64-bit operating systems.

    There is no other difference between these packages.

    Should I have used (SQLEXPR_x86) instead?

    I assumed that (SQLEXPR_x64) was the correct download.

    I did not think to check the event log, so I'll do that next week (Monday).
    This is all I have for back ground info right now.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    You can download both SQLEXPR_x86 and SQLEXPR_x64.

    SQLEXPR_x86 will be running in 32 bit compatibility mode which will affect the performance.
    So advisable method is to download and install SQLEXPR_x64 package.
