Hi

I have SQL server 2005 and wanted to also install SQL Server Express 2005 as a second named instance. I followed notes where part of the wizard allowed you to choose a second named instance,
however there was nothing like that on the wizard for SQL Server 2005 Express, so I changed the installation folder from SQL Server to SQL Server Express. Is this okay?

Do you have a default instance? I ask because you mention that the SQL 2005 instance is a named instance.

SQL Express installs into a named instance called /SQLEXPRESS by default

I installed SQL Server 2005 with Visual Studio 2005 Professional. I am not sure if this is a named instance. Is there a way to check this? I am trying to also install SQL Server 2005 Express. Not quite sure of the terminology as I am new to SQL
