    MS SQL Express 2008 installation issue during eval install

      This is applicable for installation of any Orion product where you choose the "Express Install" option (which means you elected to go with the SQL Express db instead of a Standard SQL instance). This was observed with Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 Express.

      If you see an error message that says

      Installation of Microsoft SQL Server Express failed. Invalid exit code -2067529712

      The issue is with the Windows Installer, specifically MSI 4.5 and is documented on the MSDN site SQL Express 2008 Installation failed. Process exited with code -2067529712http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/zh/sqlexpress/thread/59a47b47-cdc2-4c51-9a49-e10d1ce95b78

      Resolution:

      Cancel the Orion install and uninstall MSI 4.5 if it's already installed. Next, go to this Microsoft Link http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8483 and download the appropriate file for your OS.

      Once installation of MSI 4.5 is done, reboot your server and once it is back up, start the Orion install (NPM, SAM, etc.).

      That's it, you're done.
