Installing SQL Server Express

P: n/a
Hi,

I have a small application which uses a connection to a SQL database.
Using clickonce I make the deploy folder. Well, the target PC is old
(600 MHz, 256 MB RAM, WinXP) but it should be ok for my application.

The framework is installed, but while deploying my program, it want to
install Windows Installer 3.1 and SQL Server Express. The former has no
problem but the latter goes in timeout after downloading and installing
up to 100% of progress bar.

I guess because it takes longer time than expected but I don't think
there is actually an error.

How should I install SQL Server Express on this slow PC?

Grazie

IMO the best place to ask is in an SQL Server group. This group handles
questions that are specific to programming in VB.Net.

Yes, I know. But The trouble raises because I can't install a program
written in VB.Net. My question is not directly related to SQL Server,
but to the install wizard of VB.Net Express.

However, maybe I am in the wrong NG so thanks for the advice. Now I'm
looking for an SQL Server group.

ps. Just for curiosity: how is pronounced 'SQL' in English? As it is
spelled?

Normally pronounced "sequel".

The most common is the same as the word "Sequel." As in the sentance
"Have you seen the sequel to that movie yet?"

Thanks,
