The link is exactly what I did, pretty much clicked next next next next. I don't see any value in it.

I gave the sql service account debug program rights, it also has logon as service right and local administrator. UAC is off, firewall service is started but turned off for allprofiles state. IIS is installed and I put it in 32bit mode and registered 32bit ASP

Maybe that has something to do with it. I'll install 32bit SQL 2008 R2 tomorrow and see.

I'm also installing the 64bit sql in the x86 folder (default) not sure if that's it.

SeDebugPrivilege should be granted for admin account (to run setup), not for SQL Server service account.

FIXED!

I installed the 32bit version instead and it worked. Why wouldn't 2008Express 64bit work on 2008 R2 64bit? I don't know. I think it had something to do with the directory installation path not being in the x86 folder? Or maybe because I registered ASP.net for 32bit and IIS in 32bit mode. I do remember this being an issue even with a full install of SQL so it's definately the bits and not the version of SQL.

Thanks
