SQLserver 2005 SP2 has been required since Vista. Not certified with Windows 7.
Please see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...SQL.90%29.aspx

Are you using the SQLserver2005 with SP2 to attempt the install. If not then it WILL fail.

Hi.

Strange, but somehow Express edition installs with no problem. I installed Express Edition and than upgraded to Standard (setup.exe SKUUPGRADE=1) and then installed SP3.

Best regards,
Robert

Issue with installing SQL2005 enterpriseedition on windows7enterprise

Hi Jack,

I am facing issues installing sql2005 enterprise edition on my new windows 7 enterprise edition laptop. When the installer runs, there are 2 messages - one -
Some components of this edition of SQL Server are not supported on this operating system. For details, see 'Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2005' in Microsoft SQL Server Books Online
two -
64-bit ASP.Net is Registered. Required 32-bit ASP.Net to install Microsoft Reporting Services 2005(32-bit).
I read somewhere in the forum that the latest 64 bit sql native client needs to be installed, i did that, but that doesnt sort out the issue. also, on the components screen, the checkboxes for all components are greyed out.

you mentioned you have installed sql2005 successfully on ur windows 7 machine - any advise on how the above mentioned issue can be resolved will be appreciated.

thanks
