View Full Version : install SQL 2005 Express in Slient mode

10-11-2009, 05:56 AM
I want to know how can I add the SQL Server 2005 Express with Advanced tools into my IS 2008 project to be installed in slient mode without prompting the user and without showing the SQL Express dialogs so all will be within my IS dialogs and progress?

I want to install all features except the Management Studio and I want to specefy my new instance as TICSSQL during the installation?

For quite mode /quiet and for InstanceName type /instancename="TICSSQL".
For the SQL Server component installation go to SqlServer EXE and unzip it. You will find some text file (sorry, name slipped from mind), in that you will find all the command options from the components for SQL Server installation.
