Installation Issue With SQL Server 2005 BPA

It looks like someone messed up the build numbers of the SQL Server 2005 BPA between the CTP version and the recently released July version. The CTP version had a build number of 3038, while the July version has a build number of 1004. The setup program detects this, and refuses to install the newer version (which is the correct behavior due to the lower build number).

I guess that is one way to force you to uninstall the CTP before installing the July version…
