SQL 2008 & SQL Server 2005 Express Tools


  • I need to install SQL 2008 on my SBS 2008 VM. I get the error:

    rule “SQL Server 2005 Express tools” failed

    I followed a suggestion to change a registry key but that did not help in my case. I also don't see an option to uninstall SQL Server 2005 Express tools. I programs and features I did choose change SQL selecting the client Components but all that is listed there is "Connectivity Components", "Software Development Kit" and "Management Studio Express". How can I get SQL 2008 to install on SBS 2008 (which I think requires SQL 2005 Express).
