I notice that you have posted the same question "Vista business 64 - Cannot
install installer 4.5" in our sqlserver.setup newsgroup, which I have
already responded. So please check my answer there and if you need any
further assistance on this particular issue, please reply to me in that
thread so I can follow up with you in time.
For your convenience, I have included part of my reply as follows:
From your description, I understand that SQL Server 2008 Express could not
be installed on your server.
If I have misunderstood, please let me know.
The error messages were very general and looked not making sense since you
had enough space on your server. To dig out the cause, I need to collect
your SQL Server 2008 Express setup logs for more information. Could you
please help compress the whole folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL
Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log and send it to me
(changliw_at_microsoft_dot_com). If the compressed file is larger than 2MB,
you may first send me an email response and then I will reply you via email
to let you know how to upload large files to me.
Thank you and have a nice day!
