SQL Express Management Tools and Standard Edition Tools

P: 11

I now had my second scenario where a Client had SBS2008 which had SQL 2005 Express installed by Default.

They require Standard Edition to Run because of Obvious Limitations in the Express Edition. Installing the Standard Edition Instance is not the Problem. As soon as its time to install the "Client Tools - Standard Edtion", I get an error that says there is already such a version of that Client tools installed.

Even If I completely remove the Express Client tools Via "Add remove Programs", the same issue Appears.

Can Anyone Explain to me why this is not working and Why I need to Uninstall Everything (Including the Instance, Which I actually dont want to Do) related to SQL before it will Actually work.

Many thanks
