It looks like that you are attempting to install SQL Express 2014 to an operating system that is not supported.

Make sure that you install SQLEXPR_x86_ENU.exe which supports installation onto both 32-bit and 64-bit (WoW) operating systems. SQLEXPR32_x86_ENU.exe is a smaller package that can be used to install SQL Server 2014 Express onto only 32-bit operating systems.

I am using the following .prq

http://saturn.installshield.com/devstudio/setuprequirements/sqlexpress2014/Microsoft%20SQL%20Server%...

i believe this is the wrong download link. Do you agree with me?













SQLEXPR32_x86_ENU.exe" CheckSum="F1D9B783D30FCB6019AADD468E4AE728" FileSize="0,157175504">

Re: Is it possible to install SQL Express 2014 in silent mode via installshield? ?

It looks like that the Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express (x86 & x64Wow) and Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express (x86) prerequisites are implemented in the opposite way around. Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express (x86 & x64Wow) is supposed to download SQLEXPR_x86_ENU.exe, and Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express (x86) is supposed to download SQLEXPR32_x86_ENU.exe. Can you try using the Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express (x86) prerequisite and see if it works on your 64-bit Windows 7 machine?
