I've been having fits trying to install SQL 2008 Express on a virtual machine. It always gives me an error that it cannot find sqlncli_64.msi and says the network resource where it resides is no longer available. However, I was not installing off the network.
As a test, I tried removing the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Native Client first, and then SQL 2008 Express installed without a problem.
Does anybody have an idea of how I can have both of these on the same computer? I would try installing in the other order but our standard image has the Native Client on it already.
