Hello guys,

I have one desktop application and I need to install sql server 2008 for client PC.
and I have trying create setup with inno script.

I am trying to attach SQL server 2008 (SQLEXPR_x86_ENU.exe) inside inno setup script.
and automatically installation is start inside client PC. It's working fine but I have problem with installation, I need to install automatically ex. Create instance, User name and password automatically.

I don't know how to work it (parameter or flag or etc.)

Please help me any guys.

Do not do that! What if client has SQL Server installed yet? You have to check if SQL Server instance exists and if it does not exists, skip installation process with message: "Please install MS SQL Server (2008 and up) first!".

Please, read my comment to the question first.

Complete sample, you'll find here:[^][^]

Note: i do not recommend to install MS SQL Server via InnoSetup for set of reason. Two of them are:
1) user need to have admin privileges,
2) SQL server should be installed on server machine instead of local.
