  • Installation failure with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Advanced

    Please could I have some advice? I am trying to install SQL Server 2008 R2
    Express Advanced on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. The Business Intelligent
    Development Studio and the Management Tools Basic modules fail each time I
    try. I have applied Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (if that's relevant). What can
    I try to ensure a successful installation? I am doing this because I want
    to explore the relationship between Access 2010 (as a front end) and SQL
    Server in order to redesign an Access database that I use

    Many thanks

    What error do you get? (and anything in event or setup logs?)
    How about installing under XPMode?

      Let me put this another way: I've now had a successful install having de-selected BIDS and MTB modules. So my problem is to discover what is interfering with the installation of those two modules

      I have a horrid feeling that it's something to do with Visual Studio 2008.
      I did see some stuff about Visual Studio 2008 SP1 being necessary for a
      successful install of SQL Server. I didn't install Visual Studio -
      something did but I've no idea what. I've since removed it to see if that
      made a difference (it didn't) but notice that the SQL install results in
      Visual Studio Shell (Integrated Mode). I also notice that I've got Visual
      Studio 2005 Tools for Office Second Edition Runtime; haven't got a clue
      what that does...
