Gradience Basics - How to install SQL Express 2005

Install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express

Problem / Goal:

Windows 7 64-bit and Windows Server 2008 64-bit need to have SQL Express installed first before attempting to install Gradience Basics.

Caution: Gradience Basics will not currently function correctly in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. Microsoft SQL Express 2005 will not install in those operating systems and Gradience Basics relies on SQL Express for database purposes.
