How to manually install MSDE for The Raiser's Edge 7

How to manually install MSDE

    • Go to Start, Run
    • Browse to the setup.exe In the Install\MSDE folder on the CD
    • Add a space after the setup.exe and then the following text.

      Note: The command must be typed exactly as shown above for the installation to work. This does not work if you are using the MSDE install directly from Microsoft. It only works when selecting the setup.exe from our installation CDs and only for The Raiser's Edge 7:

      /v"TARGETDIR=\"C:\\Program Files\\Blackbaud\\The Raisers Edge 7\\MSDE\\\""

    • Click OK to begin the setup
    • Follow the installation wizard steps to complete the install

      Note: For Standalone installations, it may be necessary to enable print and file sharing on the network.
