Error 1721 AdventureWorks Windows Installer Package

description

Hi, I´m having trouble installing AdventureWorksDB.msi.
 
The Error is:-
 
'Error 1721 there is a problem with this windows installer package. A program requried for this install to complete could not be run...'
 
My operating system is Windows XP home edition.
 
I can see that other users have had the same error, however my operating system is Window XP Home Edition SP2, not Windows Vista.
 
Can you please advise me, as I don´t appear to be able to find any solutions that you may have already posted regarding this problem.
 
Kind Regards

It is important to select the SQL Server 2005 SP2 release before downloading installers as you discovered if you are running SQL Server 2005. The default installers are for SQL Server 2008.

Hi I posted this error on Friday, however, I found what the problem is. I was trying to install AdventureWorksDB for SQL Server 2008, instead of using AdventureWorksDB for SQL Server 2005.

I have since downloaded the 2005 version and installed this with no problems.

Sorry to have wasted your time.

Best Regards
