Sql server express SP2 Bootstrapper package

P: n/a
Hi All

I downloaded Sql server 2005 express SP2 and attempted to modify the
Bootstrapper package files as I did with SP1

When i try to install SQL server as part of my VS 2005 deployment app I get
an error at the end of the SQL server install phase 'Invalid endpoint'.
(Note SQL server express gets installed OK)

If I run SQL server express SP2 setup directly it I don't get the error

There must be something wrong in the .xml bootstrapper files

Any ideas?

Steve

Hi Steve,

How are you doing recently?

As for the SQL Express SP2 release, so far the SQL team does be working on
create a new bootstrapper package for it(also mentioned in the following
weblog article):

#SQL Server 2005 SP2 has been released
http://blogs.msdn.com/sqlexpress/arc...-2005-sp2-has-
been-released.aspx

Currently, I've found that some community member has also created a custom
bootsrapper solution for the SP2 release, here is a web article you can
have a look:

#Bootstrapper for SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 2
http://blogs.rbaconsulting.com/agroc...77b9-120f-43f7
-b0f3-2adc80f393f5.aspx

Also, I'll help you ask some other engineers to see whether the official
bootstrapper package will come soon.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Hi Steven

I have been well, hope all is well with you

Thanks for the prompt reply as usual

I have already tried the bootstrapper from rbaconsulting and it gives me the
error message mentioned

I guess I will have to wait till MS releases the official one

Steve

Thanks for your reply Steve,

I have forwarded this request to internal database discussion group. Also,
I would suggest you try posting in the SQLExpress MSDN weblog so that the
SQL Express team guys can hear more on this:

http://blogs.msdn.com/sqlexpress/arc...-2005-sp2-has-
been-released.aspx

Anyway, if you have any further questions or anything else we can help,
please feel free to post here.
