First of all, this guide is for users who would like to experience the beauty of sql2005 express edition(not the trial,trial sucks) and for those who experience problems in sql2000...

This is tested on winxp sp2...

Step 1:Download

SQLEXPR.exe here


U need this two files...its total of 93.3mb...just short...

Step 2:Installing SQL express

To begin the component update process, click Install. To continue after the update completes, click Finish.

4.On the Welcome page of the SQL Server Installation Wizard, click Next to continue.

5.On the System Configuration Check (SCC) page, the installation computer is scanned for conditions that may block Setup.
