Problem:

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"?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2008
  • Product Component: Database
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows


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.

  1. Browse to the Utility\SSE2005 folder of the downloaded package (usually unpacked to your Temp directory)
  2. If installing from CD browse to Utility\SSE2005
  3. You will find a file called SQLEXPR32.exe
  4. Install the SSE2005 using that executable.

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.
