During the installation of SQL Express, I received an "exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation" error.  The installation proceeded and indicated "success."

What does this mean?  Should I take corrective steps?

There are several log files that should provide more detail on the error.

You can reference this link  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955396 to find the log file. If you need additional help, please post the Summary.txt file described in the link.

My only concern is that this file appears to contain some security information.

ok. My guess is that there is a compatibility problem causing the error.

 When I installed SQL Server 2008 Express RC2, I had a compatability problem with SQL Server 2008 Express and had to uninstall first. Its most likely that type of problem.

Probably the best file to review is the file listed at the end of your Summary.txt. It should be something like this:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\20101019_130627\SystemConfigurationCheck_Report.htm

Only one warning in the file you pointed-out.  The installation didn't like me installing SQL on a domain controller.  These DCs see so little load, I don't think it will be a problem - unless there is some other reason this installation is not recommended.  We only have two servers - both DCs - so I don't have an option at the moment.

Do you think this is the exception the installation routine referred to?  If so, is there a more important issue involved here?

Thank you so much.

Thats probably it and since its a warning I would try a test of the install and see what you get.

Kind of picky.
