Has Anyone successfully repackaged the SQL 2000 Client Tools and deployed it without error on a Windows XP machine. I have created a silent install however, it fails because an Warning Dialog interupts the automated / silent install process and states OS not supported. "You can continue manually" However this kills the silent install.

Any additional info for sucess stories would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi

Have you tried creating a wrapper to the SQL client 2000 and then starting the SQL Client installation within the MSI with a command parameter /s or /q whichever is applicable.

Yes, That Fails due to the fact the pop-up dialog that states SQL 2000 is not supported on XP Pro interupts the install sequence. additional if you try to perform a setup capture it fails as well due the fact the certain .rll file cannot get registered. This causes the MSI portion to back out. Basically if I could supress the dialog I think it would work providing it does not break the MSI model.

Thanks
Let me know if you have any other suggestions

Your willingness to help is very much appreciated however,
This article does not pertain to the deployment of the SQL 2000 Enterprise Tools

Did you send the wrong link?

Good Luck with this as this app is not MSI and if you try to create MSI you will miss a .rll file
This will prevent the App from running correctly even if you have a single MSI.

I was able to create a single MSI of SQL 2000 Client Tools using Installshield Admin Studio X. It requires some tweaking but it's doable, and works better for deployment than MSFT's install on this one.
