Problem Installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Express

Posted 03 June 2011 - 11:30 AM

I have recently tried to install SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. I followed the installation wizard and it didn't work.
I then referred to a internet guide which showed a window that should appear after it installs "Setup Support Files"
This window does not appear however when I run the wizard. Any Ideas?

My computer uses windows 7, and I am installing it to use with visual basic 2010 express.

what didn't work? Did you get an error message? can you make a print screen to see what is wrong?

If you don't want to try and recreate the error, it should be recorded in your event log. Just locate it and copy/paste what it says here.

Did you get the right version (x86 x64)?

This was the error I got just before the installation wizard opened

I think you have to install .NET framework 4.0.

That's exactly what the problem is. It doesn't have the right assembly file/version. Install .NET 4.
