Error 1304 Installing SQL Support Files

February 4, 2009

Got an Error 1304 when the SQL Server 2005 Express Setup was installing the SQL Support files on a Windows XP Professional SP3 PC. This particular message indicated a problem with the .NET Framework. The typical uninstall of .NET Framework 2.0 in Add/Remove programs and re-installing didn’t work.

Thanks to this blog: I was able to download the .NET Framework cleanup tool, uninstall .NET Framework 2.0, reinstall .NET Framework 2.0 and finally finish the SQL Server 2005 Express Setup!
