I have a SQL Server 2005 standard edition installed with a default instance. I need to install an additional named instance. However I could not find the standard edition installer CD; and my colleague managed to dig out a copy of the Express edition installer. Can i use the Express edition installer to install a named instance on the standard edition? Will i get any error during the installation. I do not want to affect the current default instance.
