Has anybody tried to repackage MS SQL Server 2000? I have two questions.

1. After the program has been captured, I run the “Find Error” from the Setup Editor section. The error that it finds is in the Directory_Parent. INSTALLDIR12 shows up in this section. I believe this should point to SQL_Query_Analyzer. Is this correct?

2. I Realize that the above may not be correct and it might even be connected to this problem. When I go to install this msi, I get the following error:
“Setup requires Internet Explorer version 5.0.2314.0 or above”. The machine has version 6 installed. Any idea why I am getting this message?

Hej Dockland,

First of all, best practice for the installing Sql server 2000 would be unattended installation. What you basically have to do is record an .iss answer file (uses installshield)

And Remember to apply sql 2000 service pack 4 after installing sql server 2000. Download service pack 4, record .iss file as well and basically use: setup -s


I have managed to install sql server 2000 this way.

Good luck[;)]

25. Q. How do I perform an unattended install of SQL Server 2000?

A. If you are planning to install identical installations of SQL Server 2000 on several computers, or if you need to install SQL Server 2000 on computers that you cannot administer remotely, you can use the unattended install option. The most important component of an unattended install is the setup initialization file. The setup initialization file can be obtained in any of the following ways:

• The SQL Server 2000 CD contains several sample .iss files (Sqlins.iss, Sqlcli.iss, Sqlcst.iss) for the different types of installations.
• Each time that you perform an interactive SQL Server 2000 setup, it records all of the selections you make and saves them in the Setup.iss file found in the system root folder.
• You can use the Record Unattended .ISS file option in the Advanced Options screen to create a completely customized Setup.iss file. After you have the .iss file, you can perform the unattended install by starting the Setupsql.exe program with the appropriate parameters. For information on the complete process and other details, see the "Performing an Unattended Installation" topic in SQL Server 2000 Books Online.

You are using the wrong merge module. For some reason the SP3(?) download off of the web never had the right merge module unless it does now. I had to get it off of an actual CD rather than download it. InstallSite has an article on how to fix the merge module but I never tried it.

I am getting exactly the same error regarding “Setup requires Internet Explorer version 5.0.2314.0 or above”. Did you ever sort out the merge module?

No, I haven't sorted out the merge module problem yet. I am thinking of just doing the silent install like is mentioned above. I have to put this project on hold for a couple of weeks but will check back. Thanks for the input people.

I'm going to make an msi kick off the silent install also. The only problem is how do you do a silent uninstall!
