Hello Guys,

I'm trying to install the App Fabric using the Web Platform installer on the machine that does not have sql server installed only the operation system.

But the instalation fails because he ask me the (sa) password for the (SQL Express ) instance.

I don't know witch password i need to type, i did not install the sql express before.

Does any one could help me how to complete the app fabric instalation withou erro?

Many thanks

    Install the prerequisite software first, or use a different computer that meets the prerequisites to install the app on.  It is that simple.

    When you install the database it will ask you to assign an admin username/password for the database engine, which then runs 24x7 as a service.

    That is what the "sa" is asking about. Sorry, should have mentioned that.
