Windows 7, SQL Server 2008 Express & VWD 2008 Express Setup Problems

Hi I have Windows 7 Home Premium, and Visual Web Developer Express 2008 (which came with SP1) installed. SQL Server 2008 Express never worked - Windows 7 won't allow the Management Studio to be installed and VWD was asking for SQL Server 2005.  Looking on the web, I found advice to try the 32 bit version of SQL Server instead.  This would work with VWD, apparently.  I referred to these instructions (http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/3/163A851B-D956-42E9-B426-F5C0EBE6B654/ReleaseNotes.htm) and used the latest links and instructions, but I could not install SQL Server at all - apparently something to do with WOW64... This has been going on for a WHILE and I'm going nuts.  I am reluctant to uninstall VWD and start again, because I had to manually fix a few things, and now it's working...  PLEASE can someone tell me of a working configuration, I have read SO MUCH advice on this, and none works, including those release notes (unless I missed something) :(

( MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64 Bit on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 BIT ) X 2 Best way


Hello ,

We want to replace our single SQL server for a dual cluster setup

We have 2  of these machines :

PowerEdge R510
Intel Xeon E5630 Processor (2.53GHz, 4C, 12M Cache, 5.86 GT/s QPI, 80W TDP,
Turbo, HT), 1066MHz Max Memory
1 S
24GB Memory for 2CPU (6x4GB Dual Rank RDIMMs) 1333MHz 1 S
Additional Intel Xeon E5630 Processor (2.53GHz, 4C, 12M Cache, 5.86 GT/s QPI, 80W
TDP, Turbo, HT)
1 S
146GB SAS 15k 3.5" HD Hot Plug 2 S
146GB SAS 15k 3.5" Additional HD Hot Plug 8 S
PERC H700 Integrated RAID Controller, 512MB Cache, For 12x HDD Chassis 1 S
No Optical Drive 1 S
Redundant Power Supply (2 PSU) 750W, For 8x and 12x Hot Plug HDD Chassis 1 S

Could someone please advice us what is the best redundant setup ? , in the past i have setup a webservice with the scale out strategy ( application center 2000 ) however with SQL server we have the problem with the database files .

Our holy grail would be to Setup the servers in such a way that to the outside they appear as one so we can use both servers processing power ( round robin method would be fine )  , however if server 1 is offline that server 2 takes all the load and vice versa  , however question is how do you get the data exactly the same on both servers is it for instance possible to point to  s

64 bit Windows 7 + Excel 2010 beta + SQL Server 2008 Enterprise SP1 = My DM Add-in does not work

I'm running W7 + Excel 2010 beta + SQL Server 2008 Enterprise on a full 64-bit PC.  My SQL Server 2008 DM Add-in installs properly (throws no errors), but neither the Data Mining nor Table Analyzer tabs show up on the Excel ribbon & are not available in the Add-in dialog box.  I also have all of the above on a 32-bit laptop, and both DM tabs ARE available on the Excel ribbon and seem to function properly.

As a test I uninstalled the add-in from both machines and reinstalled.  The issue was the same; the add-in shows up on Excel running in the 32-bit environment but not on the 64-bit environment. 

Question:  Is this problem due to the 64-bit environment, or could it be something else?

Install SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit problem.



I am installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition 64bit to Windows Server 2008 R2 standard (64bit) on VMware Virtual Machine.

The OS version is 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601. Processor value shows "Interl(R) Xeon(R) CPU.

On the "Installation Rules" page, it shows the status of "64-bit processor" and "64-bit operating system" are  is "Not applicable". Click the link to see details, it shows "... rule is not applicable based on your system configuration or selections.".

I have checked the forums, and see someone asked the same question but the answer was to ignore it. The installation was completed, but I can see both 32bit and 64bit folders (\Program Files (x86) and \Program Files) have files installed on "Microsoft SQL Server". So, I don't know it is exatly 64bit or mixed with 32bit and 64bit.

Is there anything wrong on my server's setting?

Word Automation Issue in Windows Server 2008 Hosting



The problem I am posting here is that I was facing nearly 2 weeks around. Any body comes with this stuff please help.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.

No ASPNET User in Windows Server 2008?


I have been looking everywhere online regarding this, but have not found a clear answer.


I have an ASP.Net app running on Windows Server 2008, it's basically a reporting app using Crystal Reports. I have encountered a roadblock in regards to rendering some pages. When I run the app in Visual Studio(on the same 2008 machine) everything works perfectly. Yet when I publish it and run it live the reports will not display correctly, I get a message saying Failed to render page.


I looked this error up in the Crystal Reports website and the fixes they have there refer to giving the windows "aspnet" user full access rights to certain folders on the machine. I would be happy to do this, however there is no aspnet user in Windows Server 2008.


I installed the server and set its role to be Web Server. I also checked all the options regarding ASP.Net and IIS 6 compatibility. Yet there is no ASPNET username anywhere.


Did I set the server up wrong? or do I have to do something within ASP.Net to  create this user and then give it rights?
