installing sql 2008 express on 2003 server

server 2003 Enterprise edition Sp2 - This is a virtual machine hosted by godaddy.
trying to install SQL2008 Express ( SQLEXPRWT_x86_ENU.exe) to use a test platform.
it reports at the first screen that it failed check for Windows powershell SQL Install Check Screendownloaded WindowsServer2003-KB968930-x86-ENG.exe from
this comes up with an error that framework core is already installed.  Powershel instal errori have had a look through add/remove programs to see if there was a way to remove it so that i could reinstall But no luck.
any assistance appreciated. it is worth noteing that i did disable a lot of services a while back as they are not required for my application that i am running on this so i was wondering if maybe i disabled a dependancy.

This package installs both Windows PowerShell 2.0 and Windows Remote Management (WinRM) 2.0. May be not the PS already installed but the WinRM is.

Anyway hope this article would help you

Please make sure .Net Framework 3.5 and Installer 4.1 are installed

Power shell is also required.

When you click on the Failed link in the Powershell line, what does it say was the reason for the Failed status?
Andrew DavisManagerAuthor Commented:
hi guys.
sorry for abandoning this.
there really was no more info than what the 1st screen shot showed. when i clicked on the failed link it simply said that powershell failed to instal.

anyhow. as i was only installing it onto this machine for some development testing, i gave up on this and installed it directly to my laptop. So as to why, I dont know and no longer care. I suspect it was to do with the fact that it is a managed virtual server in the go-daddy data centre.

so i will split the points between you all as a gift for putting in the time to at least look at my question.

Thanks guys.
