I've tried installing visual web developer on 2 computers (my laptop has Vista home Edition and my deskto has windows XP Pro) I keep getting the following errors on both computers: "The following components cannot be downloaded: Microsoft SQL Server 2009
Express Edition (x86) Setup canncelled automatically because a component could not be downloaded. To try again, click Exit and then restart setup. For more information, see the Download Troubleshooting Guide."
I checked to make sure the BIT was installed on my comuters and they are. Is this component needed to use visual web developer 2008. If so, what can I do to get this component to install?
I'm new to this, and the installation is tedious.

I uninstall the old application, and downloaded the application from the link listed. I received the same error message. Is Microsoft SWL Server 2008 Express Edition needed? Everything else install, but for some reason, both my compters rejects this application.
Do I need to be on a server to use it?

you don't need SQL Express, indeed there should be an option not to install it.
