I'm about to throw my mug through my monitor! I'm just trying to add Full Text Indexing to an existing server. It's SQL 2005 Workgroup Edition SP3. I definitely have the right edition of the DVD.
Attempt 1: I just ran the setup and it claimed I'm trying to change the edition and therefore need to run it from the command line with the parameter SKUUPGRADE=1.
Attempt 2: I tried that but then it said that, to add components to an existing installation, I have to go via Control Panel / Add Remove Programs.
Attempt 3: I did that and it said the install is blocked because the existing file versions are later than those I'm trying to install.
Do I have to uninstall every SP and update since the orginal RTM release (which is the DVD I have)? Am I just being thick?
Please advise, Thanks
