VS.NET 2005 (June) fails to install SQL Express 2005?


Thanks for reviewing my question.  I have been struggling with trying to install VS.NET 2005 (June) and it fails to install the 2005 SQL Express. 
It reports: "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition April CTP x86: [2] Component Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition April CTP x86
returned an unexpected value."  Any advice?

I have was able to successfully install the SQL 2005 Server before I installed the VS.NET 2005 June but it complained about the .NET Framework 2.0
because it tried to install it even though it was there.

Is there a certain order when installing VS.NET 2005 (June) and SQL 2005 Server (June)? 

Many Thanks

you know, i got a similar error but it turns out that SQL Express was actually installed and seems to be running fine. look in your install path...sql express has it's own (can't remember what it is)

Had the same or similar problem with a combination of SQL Server 2005 September CTP Developer and Visual Studio 2005 RC1. Installed SQLSetpCTP first then VS2005RC1 (as recommended). Did not initially install SQL Server 2005 Express form the RC1 setup set as I thought I wouldn't need it. Found out that functionality was missing from VS (colleague did install and had more options!sic).

Tried to install express after the fact with the VS installer and found trouble (or it found me :-). What I eventually did (after reading lots of post, doing some RegClean push-ups etc.) was to run the SQLEXPR.EXE directly without any /q or other parameters. Then I got a fullblown installer wizard with customizable setup and all the good bits about collation and security model that we love :-). NB! I deselected the flag on 'Allow user creatable instances' (or similar). DON'T DO IT! Effect was I couldn't add database item/file in VS. It tould me the reason why though, so I run an

exec sp_configure 'user instances enabled','1'


on the express instance from SQL Management Studio (remember I had the developer edition installed too :-) and everything looks fine.

PS I din't install the extra bits possible during installation (tools and stuff) since I figured I already had them.

Is there a step-by-step guide to installing SQL Express 2005 to work with VS 2005 Pro
I have a Windows Vista machine and i'm having all sorts of problems getting SQL Express 2005 and VS 2005 Pro to work together. I think the problem is that I have not setup SQL Express 2005 correctly.
