I'm using a Windows Server 2003 computer and trying to upgrade from SQL Server Express 2005 to SQL Server Express 2008 and getting the error "unable to load DLL 'MSVCR80.dll':  The specified module could not be found.  (Exception from HRESULT: 0X8007007E)".  I've located the file in several place on the hard drive.  How can I get past this error and upgrade SQL Server?

A look around shows this issue with various installers not being compatible with .Net 4.0

If you can (and you may not be able to depending on what else you have on there) try removing .Net 4 and doing the install again (you can always add .Net 4 after the install completes if this works)
