sql express 2008 install fails error 1935 Microsoft.VSDesigner RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to install sql express 2008 management tools on windows 7 32bit. During the install process it first complained about needing the visual studio 2008 service pack 1. I downloaded and installed that. After that i now get an error half way through the install process:

    Error 1935.An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.VSDesigner,version="",publicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a",processorArchitecture="MSIL",fileVersion="9.0.30729.4462",culture="neutral"'. Please refer to Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x80070005. 

    Any ideas on how to resolve this?

  • actually, i got it to work by first extracting the contents of the exe file, and then running the setup.exe file.
