SQLWRITER.MSI ERROR

by JaimeMayo » Thu, 18 Apr 2013 11:43:46

I'm trying to re-install SQL 2005 Express download version. I most have deleted something that I shouldn't and now I'm getting that SQLWriter.msi missing error. All I can find in the Microsoft site is how to fix it with the CD version. How do I fix this with the download version

SQLWRITER.MSI ERROR

I downloaded the trial version from http://www.microsoft.com/SQL/default.mspx and copied SQLWriter.msi from the uncompress folder. In C drive Windows folder I created new folder Installer with SQLWriter.msi inside it. Since supposedly the folder was already there which I can't see not even with search it asked me to merge and I said yes. Went to Uninstall Programs and was able to delete SQL VSS file. Then I reinstall SQL 2005 Express.
