I am trying to install replication services to an existing instance on a 64-bit machine. The existing instance is in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\ but when I try to install replication services it defaults to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server. If I change it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\ I get an error when I get to the Database Engine Configuration page under the data directories tab that says the system database files already exist.
I guess I am unclear on where this should be installed. It is an instance feature, not a shared feature. Shouldn't it be installed to the same directory as the existing instance?
Also, I have my non-system databases on a different drive. Do I need to specify that location again?
I don't recall this being an issue when installing other features.
Thanks in advance.
