Hi, I'm installing XenApp 6.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and during the the SQL Server Express installation, I got the following error when install SQL express.

 

Exception: Cannot find registry key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSSQL$CITRIX_METAFRAME

 

I am using a domain admin user for installation

Any help would be much appreciated!

Fresh install or has it been attempted before? Sounds like installer thinks SQL Express is installed and is looking for the Instance and can't find it. Might have to repair/reinstall SQL Express or remove files/registry keys to make XenApp installer believe its a clean install.

It is a fresh installations, SQL Express was not installed on the same machine before.

What I should remove from the registry ? I prefer not mess with it as the machine is still clean

Short of trying it with local administrator or rebuilding the server I am not sure what to advise.
