I had sql server 2005 in my computer. I had to reformat the computer. After that I tried re-installling sql server 2005 again, but I am getting the following error message. Any help is appreciated.
Product: SQL Server
Component: SQL Server Native Client
Message: A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file '%.*ls'.
An attempt was made to install (or update) SQL Server Native Client on a computer where SQL Server Native Client is already installed, and where the existing installation was from an MSI file that was not named sqlncli.msi.
To resolve this error, uninstall the existing version of SQL Server Native Client. To prevent this error, do not install SQL Server Native Client from an MSI file that is not named sqlncli.msi.
I tried uninstalling sql server native client but still its giving the same error. Can someone help me?
