View Full Version : MSDE 2000 - I have 3 options, which one??

02-06-2008, 11:41 AM
In the redistributables section, I have 3 choices to pick from for MSDE 2000:

InstallShield MSDE 2000 Object for NT Platforms
Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) SP3a
MSDE 2000

Do I need all of them, only one, or some other kind of combination??? The last one activates several other modules when I finish the wizard. The first one has a nearly identical wizard, even has some uninstall options at the end (which I need). But only choosing the first one causes an installation to fail.

Any help would be appreciated. The goal is to have the installation create a new instance of MSDE 2000 and that the instance not be uninstalled if the application is.
