Error: The detected version of SQL Server cannot be used because it does not meet the minimum Service Pack requirements - when installing version 7.86

If you already have a SQL Server 2005 with Service Pack 4 (SP4) instance installed and you are installing version 7.86 of The Financial Edge, you may receive the following error: 

The detected version of SQL Server cannot be used because it does not meet the minimum Service Pack requirement. Would you like to install Blackbaud's SQL Server instance?

 

Click "Yes" and allow the Blackbaud version of SQL Server (FE_Express) to install.   After the installation of version 7.86 is complete, you can uninstall or ignore the Blackbaud version of SQL Server (FE_Express). 

Blackbaud ended support for SQL Server 2005 effective July 14, 2015. Review the system requirements for more information on compatibility.
