I have a new server onto which I have installed Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. I have not been successful at installing SQL Server 2008 Enterprise on it. After many attempts, I continue to get the following error message: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installation has failed. SQL Server 2008 setup requires .NET Framework 3.5 to be installed.Some notes:
Can i install SQL Server 2008 R2 64bit enterprise edition on windows 7 enterprise edition machine??
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?
