I am trying to install SQL 2005 SP4 - express edition silently, but I am not able to change built in service account.
At the time of installation of source, I get window to change built in service account, and I can change it successfully, but same thing I am not able to configure through silent installation.
Please guide,
Thanks in advance.

Extract the MSIs and use them with transforms.

I'm wondering why you'd want to use different accounts from the default, given that the install is on a desktop machine rather than a server....

hi thnx for reply . i have created the transform it work fine without any silent switches /qb /qb! /qn .
I am using this command line
"C:\Users\Abhishek shukla\Desktop\SQLEXPR2005_SP4\Setup.exe" TRANSFORMS="SQLEXPR2005_SP4.mst" ADDLOCAL=ALL /
Application shows all dialogs and transformed applied to setup.
but on using any silent switch it skips the transforms and default installation takes place following is the command line when transform get skipped
"C:\Users\Abhishek Shukla\Desktop\SQLEXPR2005_SP4\Setup.exe" TRANSFORMS="SQLEXPR2005_SP4.mst" ADDLOCAL=ALL /qb!

There is a template.ini file included with your sources where you can setting your configuration.
When this is edited you will then use Setup.exe /qn /settings<path to file>template.ini.
Hope this helps
