    Question Unanswered: Installing named instance with sample.msi

    I need to install a named instance of the Desktop Engine, so I followed the directions at
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...stsql_74qd.asp
    which has instructions on using Orca to modify sample.msi. I also followed the instructions found at
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...stsql_8yeq.asp
    on how to edit the msi file to create a named instance.
    YET, when used, this altered msi installs a DEFAULT instance.
    Am I missing something? If so, what?

    Thanks for any help,

    A little more info on the last edit:
    Using Orca I added the row named 'SqlInstanceName' with the desired instance name as the value to the 'Property' table.
