Post Blackberry plugin VS intall problem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
I'm trying to install blackberry visual studio plug in, but when I run the installer a window appear saying I need to install SQL server 2005 express even when I have already previously installed. I click OK to install it again and it begins the installation but it always fails, a message saying:

"The installation of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 appears to have failed. Do you want to continue the installation?"

I click yes and apparently the installation continue normally. it ask me for the destination folder, I choose default, click next and an error message appear:

"Error 27502. Could not connect to Microsoft SQL Server '.\MDSS_DB'. [DBNETLIB] [ConnectioOpen (Connect ()).] SQL server does not exist or access denied."

I have tried uninstalling SQL server express and install the one from the installer but it doesn't work!!

please, any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you for the reference.

I finally install the plugin. All I had to do was clear all the files, programs and folders related with any instance of SQL server, then uninstall MSXML 6.0 and reinstall it again, from Microsoft web page, reinstall Visual Studio 2005 without the SQL server express 2005. when all this is done, run the plugin installer and it must works!!
