Hi All,
Is it possible to install SQL Server Express when a full version of SQL Server 2005 client components are already installed on a computer. When I try to install it I am getting the following:

I'm not sure why you would want to do that, but I expect that MSSQL would not let you do this. You've already go the Server installed, add an instance if you need to split out the data.

If you installed SQL Express first and then SQL Standard Edition after that, I would expect that Microsoft would try to upgrade Express to Standard.

I already have the standard installed first and may be that's why it is complaining. Thanks for your response.

I have not tried putting Express Edition on a server that already has Standard installed, but putting Express on first definitely works.

If you put another SQL edition on to a server that already has Express, nothing is changed regarding the Express instance.

Yes add it as a new named instance in your server.

Hi,
So if I install SQL Express 2005, it will create a new named instance. and over it if I install SQL server 2005 client components, will it install BIDS where I can create and design SSRS reports, SSIS packages and SSAS cubes. Also will I be able to connect to another SQL Server 2005 database when developing these packages and reports?

For BIDS ,you have to run Enterprise,Standard or Developer edition of sql server and then you can select the component you want to install.
