Hi folks I have a 64-bit vista ultimate PC with all SP's applied. I have been attemting to upgrade the existing instance of SQL Server Expr to SP2, but it stops installing with an error dialog box saying: SQL BPA command line has stopped working Eventually I end up on a web page containing the following info: Details Product: SQL Server ID: SQLSetup90 Source: setup.rll Version: 9.00.1291.00 Component: SQL Server Setup Message: To continue you must provide a strong sa password. Explanation You selected Mixed Mode authentication, but did not provide a strong password. When I open up Management Studio Expr and examine Server Properties for the existing instance, it shows "Windows Authentication". Within the installation wizard I definitely have chosen "Windows Authentication". So, currently I am somewhat mystified. If somebody could give me a hand with this it would be wonderful. Kind regards Ross
