My colleague was trying, unsuccessfully, to install SQL Server 2008 R2 Express onto her new PC (Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit). I thought that it would be OK to use the 32-bit version of SQL Express, but when she ran the setup all it would do is indicate it was extracting the files, and then just disappear. Nothing at all would happen. Finally after several failed attempts she downloaded and installed the 64-bit version, and that worked. So the question is this, is it necessary to install the 64-bit version of SS 2008 R2 Express on a 64-bit version of Windows?

Kindest Regards,Rod
