My desktop is Windows XP sp3 and have office 2010, sql express 2005 management studio and Visual studeio 2008 sp1 installed. We have a SQL R2 server installed last week. I was able to use sql 2005 management studio to connect to the new sql 2008
Question is when i try to install 2008 R2's client tool using the 2008R2 iso image. It look for windows installer 4.5 as prerequisite. It fail in installing windows installer 4.5 with msg saying I am not the administrator and it require administrator
right. But I am logging in as administrator on local pc. I also confirmed with our IT/Server guys and they confirmed that I have the admin right. Then, I tried the following steps:
a) reboot, log in as administrator locally
b) checked eventviewer, no error/warning msg that stand out to me
c) turn off symantec antivirus
d) download windows installer 4.5 (WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe
- install it locally
- run as administrator to install
All the above steps seems not working, I am kind of out of idea. Could some on please kindly help out. All I need is the 2008 management studio and profiler install on my PC.
thank you, Ted.
