Error Code 29506, While Installing SQL Management Studio Express On Windows 7/Vista X64

This problem is caused when UAC enabled. The main problem with MSI files is that you cannot right click it and “Run as Administrator” to bypass UAC validation. To solve this problem, Either you have to logged-in as Default Administrator account or disable UAC.
