unable to install SQL Express 2005 CTP

P: n/a
Hi,

Am trying to install SQL Server Express CTP on my machine (Windows XP
with SP1). I have downloaded the windows installer and .net framewrok
specified in the readme file(ReadmeSQLEXP2005.htm) and also followed
the steps given. but could not install express. I tried installing both
June and april edition.

When I tried to install april edition the below error window is popped
up when the setup is in progress during configuring "SQL Server
Database Services", But am logged in windows domain with admin rights
and also I tried running setting through a local admin user (not logged
to win domain) but still facing the same error.

"Please user an admin account when installing on XP SP1 Systems. Setup
cannot proceed with non-admin accounts on XP SP1 systems. Refer to the
product documentation for more information"

When I tried to install june edition the following error was shown
before any install window popped. I used the uninstall wizard and
removed .net framework and again installed framework (tried with
different version of 2.0 framework like *64,*86, IA64)

"SQL Server 2005 CTP Setup has detected incompatible beta components
from Visual Studio or SQL Server. You must run the build cleanup wizard
from the CD to remove previous SQL Server 2005 components and .NET
Framework components, and then run SQL Server 2005 CTP Setup again. For
detailed instruction on uninstalling SQL Server builds, see the SQL
Server 2005 CTP readme file"

Can you please help me resolving this issue

Thanks in advance

First, if you need to post the same message in multiple groups, please
crosspost. Do not multipost. I'll echo the response you received in
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework:

<quote>
Please post to the forums for the Beta of SQL2005 and VS2005.
http://forums.microsoft.com
</quote>
and add the following thoughts:

Now that you have a failed attempt with the April CTP, you'll need to use
the procedures described here:

http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/vs2005/uninstall/

to uninstall leftovers before attempting to install the June CTP. I realize
the link above addresses VS 2005 specifically, but some of the steps
address SQL 2005. You may also have to do some manual registry cleaning.
This is beta software.
