Installed visual studio 2008 that comes bundled with SQL server 2005 express database.
But does not include a enterprise manager to browse and manage the database. You can get a free download sql server management studio separately (Download details- Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express)
While installing this I got an error after which the installation aborts :
error: Setup is missing prerequisites:
To fix the problem ,
- Go to control panel>add/remove programs
- and select msxml
- click on change
- It will give an option to repair the installation , select that.
- This should fix the registry with the correct keys and you can now proceed installing SQL server management studio.
