VS2005 Beta 2 and SQL Server 2005 April CTP (Developer Edition) Setup Failure
SQL Server 2005 Express (April CTP) included within VS2005 Beta 2 DVD fails to install when SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition (April CTP) is already installed.
It was my understanding with previous builds of Yukon and Whidbey that the install for SQL Server Developer should be done first and then the Visual Studio 2005 install should be done subsequently (including the express edition of SQL Server).

The issue is you installed Tools with SQL Developer Edition and the VS install of SQL Express attempts to install Tools as well. This is a known issue. The work around is to uninstall Tools installed with dev, install VS with SQL Express, uninstall the SQL Express tools and reinstall the DEveloper Tools.<=-=Apr 21 2005 8:55AM=-=>

Correct, that a workaround will not be required for this scenario and it will be fixed.
