Description

When upgrading to 2008r2 (RTM), i was told that i had "2005 express tools " installed.
This was incorrect and a third party add-in (redgate sql search) was giving a false positive.


Uninstalling the addin allow the upgrade to complete ok.

Encountered same issue, but RedGate updated SQL Search to version 1.0.0.315 and then SQL 2008 R2 installed without a problem.

Whilst i do agree that It is not a microsoft problem, It is obviously stopping SQL Server from upgrading. Would it not even warrant a note in the release notes ?

Thanks for contacting us.

You need to contact redgate to have this fixed. We do not have any control over this external issue.

Thanks,

Update SQL Search to version 1.0.0.315 or higher
