Hi,
I'm trying to install SQL Server 2005 Developer on Windows 7 but during installation I get this error:

An installation package for the product SQLXML4 cannot be found. Try the installation again using a valid copy of the installation package 'sqlxml4.msi'.

How can I fix this error?

Go to add/remove programs -> find SQLXML4 , click on Change -> chose Repair , and pointed it to the SQLServer2005 installation disc.

After that run setup.exe from the installation disk again and check.

Ohh, sachinpatil10d has given the solution
