I am trying to upgrade a version of SQL 2k to 2k5, but cannot get past the first screen. I'm getting error 1603, when I check the log file I see another error 2908.
What do I have to do to get this thing to upgrade. I really do not want to have two copies of SQL loaded or running.
Thanks.

JUST FOUGHT THROUGH THIS!!
Ok.
First, download the most updated version of SQL Server Express 2005.
Save it in a folder, don't install it.
Download the Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, found on their website. Install & go to Start/Programs/Windows Install Cleanup
Open it & select only the SQL Server items it finds & Remove. Exit.
Control Panel add/remove programs: remove any partial install of SQL it finds.
Cut & Paste all of your database files from Program Files/Microsoft SQL Server/Data into a new folder, I have one called Database for this purpose. It won't delete or copy any of the M.. files, logs, etc. that are its defaults.
Reboot.
Install the saved version of SQL Express 2005 you just downloaded, but when the screen comes up that asks for where you want to install it to (the default is Program Files/Microsoft SQL Server), Name type in something else after it, like the current year, so that the remaining data files in Program Files/Microsoft SQL Server/Data from previous installs won't be there.
Copy & Paste the database files you moved into the new /Data folder.
Now Business Cotact Manager database can actually load when I open Outlook!! Yay!!
I've spent 3 or 4 days on this monster, trying different fixes and looking up error codes. Try this.
Good luck!
