VS Database Professional CTP5

Posted in Sql and Xml at Monday, August 21, 2006 3:51 AM Pacific Daylight Time

The CTP5 is now available. I'm installing it right now and I already have a complaint.

Why do you force me to install SQL Express when I already have SQL Developer installed!?!?!

I don't want to install SQL Express, but it seems that datadute, along with ASP.Net, makes my life difficult without it. Is there some way to avoid the SQL Express installation? I thought we had already discussed this...

Update: I figured out a way around this and posted it here.

I agree that forcing you to install SQL Express is pretty dumb. They should see if you have SQL Server 2005 installed, and if not, ask if you want to install Express.

Whatever you do, don't check the version level of SQL Express... also, when I tried to service pack it last night, it yelled at me. I'm going to take a look at it again this evening but don't have a lot of hope for success on this one.
