cannot install sharepoint with sql express
Posted on 2015-01-30
I am trying to demo sharepoint.
I have installed SQL Express 2008 on a Win Server 2008 box. All installed fine and have the express version with SP1. I have set the neccessary rights in SQL for the sharepoint AD accounts that were created (dbcreatror, security admin).
I have installed Sharepoint 2013 onto the same box. On the configuration wizard, when I try connect set up a new server farm, at the point where i specify configuration database settings, i receive the message:
"SQL server at ****\sqlexpress has an unsupported version 10.0.1600.22."
Will this work with SQL Express?
