Installing NAV 5.0 SP1 on Windows 7

I recently migrated to Windows 7 from Windows XP. Most of the software updates were going smooth with suitable notifications if anything was missing, but when I tried to install NAV 5.0 SP1, I got a strange error message, but minutes later I got a notification that I had to upgrade my SQl Server 2005 Express to, SQL Server 2005 SP3.
Since NAV 5.0 SP1 installs a SQL Server 2005 Express, I was hoping that the service pack may be the cause for the strange error. I got it downloaded and ran it, everything was fine since then.
