Default Installation not working?


Hi,

I have finished my VB program and have been publishing it. I included all the necessary prerequisites and published it, and it worked fine. But then i tested it on some other computers, and while installing the prerequisite SQL server express, it will fail the installation.

When i installed it on computers with Windows 7, SQL did not require do restart and it worked fine. When i installed it on computers with Windows Vista and XP, SQL did require to restart and the installation will always fail.

I think i know whats causing it as well, while publishing it comes up with the warnings

"Item 'Microsoft.Net.Framework.3.5.SP1' could not be located in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\'. "

and also

'SQL Server 2008 Express Edition' could not find dependent item 'Microsoft.Net.Framework.3.5.SP1'.

I dont know why its failing, and i hope someone has a solution, your help is greatly appreaciated.

This is where im getting the SQL prerequisite from:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en


and im getting the dotnet framework 3.5 sp1 from:

First Item of importance indicated on your .Net Link
Quote:
IMPORTANT: After installing the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 package (either the bootstrapper or the full package) you should immediately install the update KB959209 to address a set of known application compatibility issues.
Second Item of Note from the readme file
Quote:
2.1.4 .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 language pack fails to install on Windows 2008 Server

.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 language pack fails to install on Windows 2008 Server if the matching operating system language pack is not installed.

To resolve this issue:

Install the matching operating system language pack before you install the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. You can obtain the operating system language pack from http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/d...isplaylang=en.
