    Availability of SQL Server 2005 Express SP2 Redistributable

    SQL Server 2005 Express SP2 has been available since February 2007. Does anybody know when it will become available as a downloadable redistributable for Installshield 2008 Express? At the moment, only SP1 seems to be available in the list of downloadable redistributables.

    You have to create the prerequisite yourself for now. Though I agree it would be nice if this would have been available for download by now.

    The issue has already been submitted under the work order #IOC-000063125, and it will be addressed in the next major release of InstallShield.

    For InstallShield 2008 users, I attach the setup prerequisite file for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express SP2 to this community post. Please copy the .prq file to C:\Program Files\Macrovision\IS2008\SetupPrerequisites folder and restart your InstallShield IDE. Note that this is not an offical update as the prerequisite is not fully tested by the QA team. If you find any issue, please report in this thread. Also if you are using an InstallShield IDE installed on a machine without an internet connection, you need to download http://saturn.installshield.com/devs.../SQLEXPR32.EXE manually on a different machine that has an internet connection, and copy it to C:\Program Files\Macrovision\IS2008\Objects\SQL2005ExpressSP2 folder.

    Regards.

    I am using InstallShield 2008 Professional and we only do InstallScript projects. How is it possible, if at all to add a prerequisite to my project? Looking at the documentation, it looks like it only pertains to Windows Installer based or MSI projects.

    Big bummer!
