SQL Server 2014 Express

  • Print
  • E-mail

This is a set of dependency modules for Setup Factory, and it can be used if you need to deploy SQL Server 2014 Express Edition (Database Only), 32 or 64-bit, on your client's computer.

SQL Server 2014 Express installer needs the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, as well as Windows Installer 4.5. It also requires PowerShell 2.0, which is part of recent operating systems, but may be needed for ancient computers. SQL Server 2014 Express also requires the .NET Framework 4, but this is included in the installer, and deployed if not already available.

The installers for SQL Server 2014 Express Edition (Database Only) provided by Microsoft are broken, and won't allow an unattended installation. For this reason, custom built installers for this edition of SQL Server can be downloaded as part of this dependency module package.

How to use

  • Download the installer below and select the desired packages for installation.

    The installer will detect if you have the required runtime modules for the dependencies you selected to deploy. If there are files missing on your system, these will be automatically selected for download.

  • The SQL Server 2014 Express dependency module comes in two versions: 32-bit and 64-bit. SQL Server 2014 also needs Windows Installer 4.5 and the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, so you must make sure that these are included before attempting to deploy SQL Server. Failing to do so will cause numeric error messages.
  • In the Windows Installer 4.5 dependency installation script, make sure that you set these variables as shown, especially if you chose not replacing it with the updated version:
    local bVital = true;
    local bSilentMode = true;
    local bNoRestart = true;
  • In the SQL Server 2014 Express Edition dependency installation script, make sure that you set these variables:
    local SQLSVCACCOUNT = "NT AUTHORITY\\Network Service";
    local SQLSVCPASSWORD = 'StrongPassword';

    The variables SQLSVCACCOUNT and SQLSVCPASSWORD should be set to reflect the desired user account and the sa password under which SQL Server 2014 Express will be running. Of course you can modify the command line used for the installation of the product, if you do not wish to use a single setting for SQLSVCACCOUNT, SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS and AGTSVCACCOUNT.

Please note that SQL Server 2014 Express needs Windows Vista SP2 or a more recent operating system - it won't install successfully on Windows XP. For XP, you can use SQL Server Express 2008 or SQL Server Express 2005.

Feel free to modify the detection/installation scripts further, if you need or wish to. For example, you may want to change the module to deploy the "Database with Management Tools" or "Database with Advanced Services" packages, instead of the "Database Only" installer that is included here. You have to know how you would need to update the command line arguments passed to these installers, however - I cannot offer free assistance on this matter. As usual, feedback and thanks is always appreciated - please use the comment box below.

SUF Script Explorer

  • Print
  • E-mail

Unlike AutoPlay Media Studio, Setup Factory does not come with a script explorer tool. In order to still quickly locate where a certain variable is defined or used, where a function is called, or to perform a quick refactoring of an existing project without resorting to a text editor for searching in a huge XML document, SUF Script Explorer was developed.

Click image to view a short demonstration


  • Open and inspect Setup Factory projects quickly;
  • See immediately a list of all screens in both the install and uninstall sequences;
  • See a list of all event scripts for each of the dialogs;
  • See which events actually have scripts, and aren't completely empty or feature just comments (single or multiline);
  • Perform searches for a certain word - which can be a function or variable name;
  • Replace one text with another, in every script it appears - both during install and uninstall, without needing to step manually through every script of all screens in the Setup Factory IDE;
  • Invoke the Indigo Rose script editor to perform a quick change of any script just by clicking a button or double-clicking the script name in the tree;
  • Save the changed project file, while making a backup copy of the former version. Your existing project file is renamed and kept intact. You can always return to the former version, should you make a mistake or something does not work as expected.
