Basic MSI and installing SQL Server Express
Hi, I try to install SQL Server Express as Custom Action in Basic MSI. And it fails. I looked at SQL Server installation logs and it looks like loop of entries:
Slp: Sco: Attempting to close service handle for service msiserver
Slp: Sco: Attempting to close SC Manager
Slp: Sco: Attempting to open SC Manager
Slp: Sco: Attempting to open service handle for service msiserver
Any ideas? I would like to have MSI running in command line, installing SQL Server Express if not present. Any alternative solutions?

Hi @kmisniak2 ,
Why not pre-requisite as an option?You can configure SQL express as an msi installation via Redistributables view.There are already predefined SQL express pre-requisites provided by InstallShield.
Below link can help you configure connecting with SQL connection from client:
