Installing SQL 2005 with custom action
Posted 07 May 2010 - 10:17
I need to install SQL 2005 Express Edition with my software program.
First I tried by just adding the SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE to a custom action. This does not work since I already have an installation running. At least that is the error message that I get.
So now to my question. I install this file to the same directory as my application and then I want to run it from there. How do I do this?
Is there anyone else having this kind of problem with SQL?
I appreciate any help that I can get.

Given that SQL Server is *most* likely to be installed in a corporate environment and that most such environments push installs silently, how will your method work?
Remember also that nested MSIs are now universally regarded as A Very Bad Thing.
