I recently upgraded to MS Office 2007 Professional from Office 2003, and cannot, regardless of what I try, get CD 2 of the installation set to install SQL Server 2005 Express or the Outlook 2007 Business Contact Manager. Every attempt results in the same error:
Setup failed to install the required component Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express (MSSMLBIZ). Microsoft Office Professional 2007 CD 2 cannot continue. See C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Summary.txt for more detail.
I have tried many recommendations that I've found on the internet, including:
1. Uninstalling SQL Server 2005 components and then install it from the standalone version offered via Microsoft's website.
2. Reinstalling MS Office.
3. Reinstalling Outlook.
4. Using the Windows Install Clean-up program to make sure that "interrupted" installations were deleted and then attempting to reinstall SQL Server.
Thus far, NONE of the recommendations I've had have gotten me any further. Does ANYBODY have any suggestions or has anybody dealt with and resolved this problem? I am attaching the Summary.txt file referenced in the error message so that somebody with a "fresh eye" can take a look at it. I don't, a this point, know what I'm looking for.
