        • Prerequisites
          To install or update SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 one will need adminstrative rights on the computer.

            Step 1: Install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later from the Microsoft Download Center

            Step 2: Download SQL Server Express by clicking the SQLEXPR.EXE or SQLEXPR32.EXE link on this page. To start the installation immediately, click Run. To install SQL Server Express at a later time, click Save.
            Note: SQLEXPR32.EXE is a smaller package that can be used to install SQL Server Express on 32-bit operating systems only. The SQLEXPR.EXE package supports installing onto both 32-bit and 64-bit (WOW install) operating systems. There is no other difference between these packages.

            Step 3: Follow the installation instructions provided in the Readme. Known issues may be found in the SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 Release Notes.
