Thanks for the update. I'd seen that mentioned already, and Win 7 comes with Windows Installer 5. Hopefully the SQL Server installer checks with >= rather than == ;-)

Thanks. I tried installing Express then SP1, but got the same error message when trying to upgrade. I also got the same error message when using the slipstream version. +1 for the suggestions though, thank you.

Thanks. I tried installing SQL Server 2008 before installing .NET 3.5 SP1, so I know that isn't the problem in this case.

Goodness me, what an idiot. It's bad enough saying it, but CCing it around the place is disgraceful
