Why do I get the error, "WARNING: Failed to install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition which is mandatory for the sample. Do you still wish to continue without the sample"?
This error will occur if the SSE configuration that StarTeam creates to host the StarTeam StarDraw sample database fails to install. It is usually caused by an installer problem however there is a workaround to let you continue with the installation.
Please note that this installation is only needed if you want to
use the sample StarDraw configuration. If you are already familiar
with StarTeam and don"t want these files you can choose
to perform a custom installation of the StarTeam Server and uncheck
the checkboxes for Sample and MSDE/SSE.
