The solution for installing this package is to run it as "administrator". On my Windows7 system this user is setup automatically when I installed Windows7. However it was disabled and did not appear on the login screen. Go to "Computer Management", "Users". Right-click on "administrator" and enable it. Then login as "administrator" and double click on SQLServer2005_SSMSEE_x64.msi to install the package.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for getting back to me, and I am glad you solved the issue. We will consider to add a check if SQL Server setup was run as admin, but for our next release. We already have a check in place to validate if the "setup invoker" is an admin on the box. We might need to extend that check.

Thanks for the feedback. With this I am closing this issue.

Hello Max, thanks for your post. I solved this. Even though I am an administrator on my Windows 7 box, I had to run the install program as administrator from a CMD administrator window. That installed successfully. You folks really should update the documenation, and put a check to in the install program to see if it's being run as adminstrator. If the check fails, pop out out a message that it has to be run as admin.

Bill,

Thanks for reporting this issue. Please run the following (substituting the <path-to-logfile>) and send us the log file. We will investigate.

msiexec /package SQLServer2005_SSMSEE_x64.msi /l <path-to-logfile>


Thanks,
Max Verun

The 32 bit version of SSME doesn't install, wrong version for 64bit.

It appears that visual studio professional 90 day trial version installed 32 bit version of sql server express. Should I be installing 32 bit of version of SSME even though I'm running 64bit processor?
