Upgrading from SQL Express 2005 SP 2 to SP 3 (for upgrading ePO 4.5 to 4.6) getting problem

Hi frnds

First time I am posting my question onthis portal and requesting your help, thanks in advance

I am trying to update ePO4.5 patch 4 to ePO 4.6

So as a pre-request i took all backup necessary mentioned in installation guide

ePO 4.6 needs SQL Express 2005 with SP 3 or 2008 with SP 2

In my environment I have SQL Server Express 2005 with SP2

So i have downloaded SP3 and tried to install

But some problem arrising with SQL Sevrer Instance for which it says instance does not qualify

So I cant install ePO 4.6 please do help me in this regard

Operating system is Win 2k3 Std 32-bit

Thanks

How many instances are installed on this server, is it just the eposerver instance or do you have another one?

I think you have downloaded SP3 for the full version of SQL 2005 - you need the version specifically for SQL 2005 Express.

yes you are right sir, i have downloaded full version sp3, so it was giving problem

now i solved this problem, i downloaded, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 3, from the link : http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=12413            which is  SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE 255.6 MB file, and it worked great for me, and I have upgraded ePO4.5 to ePO4.6 successfully.

thanks
