> SQL Server Express Edition > 2005
Version 2005 of SQLServer Express Edition, including any service packs (currently at SP4).
Download Links for updated installers: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=184
Version Number should be 9.00.5000
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913089 is severly outdated (still says "SP2")
What does not
Installer fails...believe this is related to the fact that the Distributed Transaction Coordinator is missing from Wine. One of the early error messages is this:
err:module:import_dll Library XOLEHLP.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft SQL Server\\90\\Setup Bootstrap\\sqlspars.dll") not found
According to web searches this DLL belongs to MSDTC.
What was not tested
Any functionality beyond initial install.
