I have an existing SQL Server 2005 Installation with Service Pack 2 installed and it's running on Windows Server 2003. For this program that I'm trying to run, it's asking me to add Analysis Services to SQL Server 2005. How do I go about doing that without accidentally uninstalling SQL Server 2005? All I know is that I go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > SQL Server 2005 > Change. Then from here I suppose I go to "Install a new component", find the setup file, then press next.. then I get lost when I get to the Components to Install page. If I just click on "Analysis Services" and continue, will it just add analysis services or will it uninstall all the unchecked components as well?

The Add New Component method will be fine, but you could also just run the DVD/Setup again and add only Analysis Services.
