SQLServer2005 dev reinstall on VS2005

Initially VS2005 runs against SQLExpress and SQLClient on a dev box. SSAS, SSIS and SSRS are also installed. As 12GB new testdb requires the use of SQL2005 dev, SQLexpress is uninstalled. But Installing SQL2005 dev is stopped by Registration Key Check Error. Now Is it OK to install SQL2005 dev? Will this insatll make VS2005 suffer loss of SSAS, SSIS and SSRS, or even malfunction? Please advise. Thanks.

SSAS, SSIS, SSRS depend on SQL. I imagine that you already have SQL Dev installed.

SQL Express was I'm guessing installed as a named instance. or you have already damaged the setup of SSAS, SSIS, and SSRS.

Please advise steps to upgrade from SQLExpress to SQL2005 Developer. Thanks.

What have you deployed against SSAS, SSIS, SSRS?

If nothing, then I would make sure everything for SQL is uninstalled. Double check with the Microsoft "Windows Install Clean Up" utility.

Start with a fresh install of SQL Developer, and attach the test database, or restore from its backup.
