this the best example I have seen, has good values for domain/user that some one could learn from.

I have been struggling with sql 2005 express on xp home edition past 5 days and still not installed.
I will try the command line and see what it will do.

Thanks for your posting.

I had this problem, and I tried my luck on an old and very technical method.

1) Turned back the clock
2) started the sql service
3) Ran setup from the licenced media
4) Put the clock back
5) Rebooted.

Lucky me!

Thanks for this post. It did help a lot.
For additionnal information,
1 There is a template file (search for template.ini) with all options.
2 If you install SQL Server Express, you don't need to provide userid/password BUT you 've got to mention them like this:

SQLBROWSERACCOUNT=
SQLBROWSERPASSWORD=

SQLACCOUNT=
SQLPASSWORD=

AGTACCOUNT=
AGTPASSWORD=

ASACCOUNT=
ASPASSWORD=

RSAccount=
RSPASSWORD=

3 If you downloaded the install file from the internet
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=220549b5-0b07-4448-8848-dcc397514b41&displaylang=en

For the installation, you will have to open a command prompt, browse to the location of the downloaded file and to provide the name of the downloaded file instead of setup.exe

start /wait SQLEXPR.EXE /qb /settings c:\SQLInstall.ini
