I saw your post and wanted to ask you some questions about it.
Do you have an existing SQL2000 IssueTracker database that you are seeking to move to SQL Express 2005 or are you attempting a fresh install of IssueTracker and just happen to be trying to use SQL Express 2005?
The machine that is running your SQL Express 2005, is it a Windows XP Professional version machine, a Windows 2003 Server (if so what flavor as in web, standard, enterprise edition), or another version operating system?
If you are running Windows XP Professional, do you have IIS5 and the .NET 1.x version installed? If you are on a Windows 2003 Server, do you have IIS6 and .NET 1.x version installed?
Which flavor of SQL Express 2005 are you using, the small footprint download of 20 some odd meg or the larger flavor of 200 some odd megs? Just trying to find out which one you are using.
Lastly, have you tried to upgrade or install before and received an error? If so, please let me know what error(s) you received.
I have just about completed a series of aritcles that I will be posting very soon regarding how to install, admininster, and use Issue Tracker at its present level. I have not personally attempted to use SQL 2005 (any flavor) yet with Issue Tracker but
I have plans to try doing that within the next few days before releasing my articles.

Irasmith, thank you very much for your reply.
I was just installing issuetracker starter kit in my desktop, which is a windows xp professional version machine with sql2000. I played with this tool for a few days and found out it is very useful, then I decided to do some enhancement on it then put it
into a web host server as a project management tool.
So, basicly, I was attempting a fresh install on windows XP Professional OS with VS2003 and sql2000, but try to migrate to VS2005 professional, sql2005 express(which comes with VS.2005 professional, not sure which flavor it is) and with now.
In the near future, I plan to host it in a web host server, which is a windows 2003 server with sqlexpress 2005, not sure which flavor of it yet.
At last, My current solution is to create a backup db file for issuetracker DB in sql2000, then port it to sqlexpress 2005, but I found out there is no restore db functionality for sqlexpress. So, base on what starter kit provides, how do you migrate issuetracker
to vs2005 with sqlexpress 2005?
Please let me know if you have any progress on issuretracker migration and post your link once you finish your article, I sincerely appreciated your help and your work on issuetracker.

While I have not had time yet to tackle the specific SQL 2005 aspect of your question, I have made enough progress in my documentation efforts to release the initial beta of those documents.
You can visit
http://www.irarichardsmith.net/IssueTracker/GeneralInformation/tabid/54/Default.aspx to obtain general information on my goals for the Issue Tracker project. The actual beta documentation can be downloaded from
http://www.irarichardsmith.net/IssueTracker/Documentation/tabid/55/Default.aspx and I have a set of community discussion forums at
http://www.irarichardsmith.net/Forums/tabid/56/mid/370/groupid/2/Default.aspx which will serve as the area to discuss my work on Issue Tracker.
Hope this helps,
