Issue with Client install on XP

Aug 25, 2010 at 4:08 PM

In SQL2008Install4Xtras.vbs, line 216, the strHKLMSQL value is changed.   This is a registry location that does not exist.  I modified the code to exclude Client installs and then it worked.  I am not sure if this is the correct way to handle the issue in general as I am not sure if it is an XP only issue or a client issue.


strPath           = Mid(strHKLMSQL, 6) & "Instance Names\SQL\"
  objWMIReg.GetStringValue strHKLM,strPath,strInstance,strInstReg
  If IsNull(strInstReg) Then
    strHKLMSQL      = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\"
  End If
