I�m unable to install BE 11d for Windows 2000 Servers - as it seems, thanks to WMI. During the environmental check it says the WMI has to be fixed. I�ve followed the instructions to manually enable it again, using the commands from the DOS-prompt, though I get a message saying that "'wmiadap.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
I�ve also tried to pre-install SQL Express but that doesn�t help either, I only get a message saying that: The Microsoft SQL Server SQLEXPRESS is not a valid SQL 2000 instance for installing the database to".
Besides this I�ve also tried to install a new SQL instance using the option "Create a local Backup Exec SQl instance..." and then point to the SQL Express setupfile but then I get a message telling me that: "SQLEXPR.EXE is not a valid SQL Express SP1 setup file".
The server is located at a school and there is a SQL Anywhere 7 instance running on it (hosting the schools library database). Could this be a problem? Can�t they both be running at the same time on the same server?
Yes, I�m a SQL-newbie so any help or suggestions would be great.
Yes, I�ve tried to install after the check, that�s when I get all those errormessages. How to fix WMI? Seems like that is the problem, because when I try to install BE on a workstation (with Windows XP) the check goes just fine without any errors and I can install the program.
Yeah...I�ve downloaded and installed the SQLEXPR.EXE, no difference sadly.
