Installation problems with Bizagi Express SQL Express 2008
On first attempt to install Bizagi Express I got a failure at the point the installer was installing SQL Express 2008.
I attempted to get around this by installing SQL Server Express 2008 separately and before attempting the bizagi installation. Eventually I got SQL Server Express 2008 installed. If I look at the Help\About in the version of SQL Server 2008 Express installed i get:
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 10.0.1600.22 ((SQL_PreRelease).080709-1414 )
Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2000.085.1132.00 (xpsp.080413-0852)
Microsoft MSXML 2.6 3.0 4.0 5.0 6.0
Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.50727.3649
Operating System 5.1.2600
Typing select @@version in the SQL window I get:
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (RTM) - 10.0.1600.22 (Intel X86) Jul 9 2008 14:43:34 Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation Express Edition with Advanced Services on Windows NT 5.1 <X86> (Build 2600: Service Pack 3)
Within the SQL Server instance I then set up a fresh database and new administrator level user who owns the new database. Then I re-attempted installation of bizagi:
This is the error message I get:
"SQL Server Version: Sql Server 2008 RTM Express Edition not supported. Please install SQL Server 2008 SP1 or later"
So the bizagi installation of SQL doesn't work - and I cant seem to find a version from microsoft that bizagi will tolerate. Can you help??
