    Hello friends

    @ my dear friend I think there might be issue with your window drivers first

    @ first go to update your window so now check your windows drivers and update them

    @ after that I think there might be problem with the setup of that software you want to install

    @ so try to download it from internet again than install it in your window xp

    @ it may be or may not support your window xp lets check it

    @ I think you will satisfied with my answer

    With regards

    1.You have identify what are the system requirements will be need.

    2.Next install the database software prerequisites.

    3.Next create a S Q L server service account.

    4.Install S Q L server 2005 express edition.

    5.From a security perspective, it's best to run S Q L server as a normal everyday user.

    6.When possible, don't use the built in service account on your S Q L server.
