Mediaportal wants to install SQLEXPR64.EXE on vista x64.
The Microsoft link is to SQLEXPR.EXE and SQLEXPR32.EXE 2005 version.
SQLEXPR.EXE is for both versions.

Hi all,

I just downloaded the "slightly" bigger universal version (sqlexpr.exe) and renamed it afterwards into sqlexpr64.exe

It worked well.

Cheers, T.

    This problem still exists. I'm doing a "only download the files now" on a virgin W7 64bit system. It prompts me to manually download the following file: "sqlexprt64.exe" yet the link only allows sqlexpr.exe or sqlexpr32.exe. I can do a rename as above but I thought I'd mention that this problem still exists 4 years after it was reported.

    Incidentally, the previous file also had to be manually downloaded, and the link it provided was incorrect as well.

    Yeps, i can confirm. It works fine though if you select the SQLEXPR.EXE file to download and select that after it's completed, but an update in the installer would be nice. Maybe we can consider an update to the 2012 Express version also.

    Just a quick note, to relevant dev: this inaccuracy during download files only execution still exists o_O.
    Discovered during Win10 upgrade, using MP 1.13.0
