I am having problems installing Microsoft SQL Express 2008. The server I am trying to connect to requirse 2008 and I had to remove 2005 in order to try and install 2008.
When going to microsoft.com/express/sql/download/ I click to install the SQL Express Management Studio (I tried all the versions with the same result ). And each time it givs me the following error:

As you can see VS 2008 SP1 is already installed. I uninstalled MSSQL 2005 Express and all its respective locations. I do have Visual Studio 2005 installed though.

Help Please.

You have the .NET framework 3.5 SP1, but not Visual Studio 2008 SP1. You can see that in your screenshot where it says "Version 9.0.21022.8 RTM" on the left. Install it from here -> http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

Twitter - My statements do not establish the official position of Microsoft Corporation, and are my own personal opinion. (But you already knew that, right?)
