SQL server express 2008

I'm trying to install sql server express on a 32bit windows 7 PC (hazus application) and get the following error
SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error:
Quote
MsiGetProductInfo failed to retrieve ProductVersion for package with Product Code = '{96327C3C-96BE-4C7A-A6F7-A71635E5949A}'. Error code: 1605..

An inspiraton would be nice Roll eyes (I've tried MS Fix it to no avail)

Re: SQL server express 2008

A search on the error message always helps  I found this:
http://www.windowsvalley.com/fix-sql-server-setup-has-encountered-the-error-code-1605/
But there are other suggested solutions elsewhere.

Re: SQL server express 2008

RR:- thanks for the link, didn't help directly but led to a tip that suggested uninstalling MS C++ redistributable packs, then installing SQL sever.
All seems to be working OK (after a fashion)
