About the SQLEXPRESS Installation Process

The installation may require you to have the latest Windows updates installed on your system. You may want to update your system before running the installation.

Click the Download SQLEXEXPRESS button and choose to download the SQLEXPRESS installer to your computer. Note: If you choose to run the installer from the web site without downloading it, you will encounter errors. Once the download is completed, run SQLEXPR32.EXE to install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition. Read the End User License Agreement, check the acceptance, and click Next to accept the terms.


Set-up will check for prerequisites. Click Next, and then Next again to begin the installation.

The installer will check for any potential installation problems. Respond to any errors, note any warnings and continue by clicking Next.


Fill in the Registration Information. Check the “Hide advanced configuration options” checkbox unless you are doing a custom installation. Click Next.


You will be installing the SQL Server Database Engine, which is the default. Click Next.


Select “Windows Authentication Mode”. This option will use your Windows User name and password for connecting to your Library database. Click Next.


Check the “Enable User Instances” checkbox. Click Next, and then Install.


The installation may take several minutes to install the necessary components.

When the installer has completed, click Finish.

SQLExpress should now be successfully installed on your local system, and the @RISK Library features should now be available.
