SQL Express and Windows 7 64 Bit Deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application written in VB.Net which uses SQL Server Express 2005.  I use a standard Setup and Deployment project to distribute the application, and for the prerequisites check the SQL Server Express Edition SP2 (x86) check-box to automatically install SQL.

    When installing the setup package in a Windows 7, 64 bit environment I receive an error stating that the version of SQL is not supported for the current processor (which makes sense).

    My question:  Is there a way to automatically install SQL 32 (or 64) on the PC without having the user run a separate installation?  What is the best method to deploy SQL in a 64 bit OS?

    Any help would be appreciated.
