Add Full-Text Search to existing SQLServer Express installation
Posted on 2008-10-27
We have a Windows 2003 Server with SQLExpress 2005 installed. We need to install the Full-Text Search engine, but can't. If I try to add the feature via Add/Remove programs, it prompts for the Setup.exe file, which I do not have.
If I run the SQLEXPR-ADV.EXE (full SQLExpress & Advance Services install), and select the Full-Text Search option, I get this:
Name: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 (SQLEXPRESS)
Allowed Action: Maintain (Action is only available from Add or Remove Programs)
Reason: Cannot maintain product, to maintain the product go to Add or Remove Programs
