I am trying to install SQL CE Server Tools 3.5 SP1 on a SQL Server SBS 2008 64 bit. In the beginning, there was SQL Server 2005 installed with an SBSMONIOTORING instance, and while I try to install SQL CE Tools, I got the error "replication component must be installed for SQL Server 2005 or 2008", and installation stopped.
I then completely removed the SQL Server 2005 from the server, and use SQL Server 2005 Express SP3 64 bit to reinstall a new instance. However, SQL CE Tools still got the same error and will not install.
Any idea how to fix this issue? Any help is appreciated.
