Hey all,
This is driving me nuts. I was able to obtain a copy of SQL Server Web edition free from Microsoft's WebSiteSpark program. I went to install it on my Windows server 2008 Foundation Edition R2 server after removing all of SQl Server 2008 R2 express. I can't get the darn thing to install on there no matter what I do. The command prompt flashes quickly, and then the installation center pops up. That's pretty normal, but the unfortunate thing is there is no option for new installation or to add features to an existing installation. I know very well that Web edition doesn't support upgrade paths from express. Why do you think this issue is occurring? Thanks for any help.

Oops. Microsoft are quicker than I thought. I posted this here because it looked as if I wasn't going to get another response from them. I did. Sorry about that. They tell me to make sure that everything, including all registry entries are removed as well, so I have to go in and do that. But it's confusing because you tell us not to touch it when removing a program in general.
