    Unanswered: MS SS05 Express - Add replciation component

    I'm trying to find out how to add the replication component to an existing SS05 Express Edition instance. On the ade/remove programs, install new component dialog, it's looking for the location of setup.exe in the SQL Server 2005 installation media .. where do I point it for that? I tried extracting the SQLEXPR32.EXE to a directory and pointing it at the setup.exe from the archive, but that wasn't accepted. Where is the setup.exe????

    According to Microsoft, SQL 2005 Express only supports being a subscriber. You will need to replicate from at least a Workgroup edition.
