SYMPTOMS

You try to install the 64-bit version of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (SP2) on a computer that has a 64-bit edition of SQL Server 2005 installed. When the installation process starts, the Setup program may not detect that 32-bit components are locked. The 32-bit components are installed together with the 64-bit edition of SQL Server 2005. Therefore, the Setup program does not report these components in the Files in Use dialog box. However, you may still be prompted to restart the computer when the installation process ends.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the 64-bit Setup program cannot detect if a 32-bit application is locking 32-bit SQL Server components.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
