i have Windwos 7 Professional Installed in my computer. also i have installed Visual Studio 2008 as well.
last week i wanted to install SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition in my computer so i came to know that u need the SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 for this as well.
after obtaining both the Enterprise Edition Setup and the SP3 Setup of SQL Server 2005, i began the installation. first i installed the server. and selected The Server and Workstation components. but when the installation was progressing, it gave a message
that the workstation componenets could not be installed and hence only the MSSQLSERVER Service got installed. i take think this so seriously hoping that client tools (workstation componenets) can be installed after the SP3 is being installed. so after the
setup completed, i installed SP3 as well. even there, the client tools were disabled.
after SP3 installation and System Restart, i couldnt find Managament Studio; so i again went to the SQL server 2005 setup and selected the client tools to be installed. but just before the installation started, an error message prompted saying that "one
or more componenets could not be installed" and then exiting the setup..
please advise what i am missing. i tried the same thing using SQL Server 2005 Standard but the same thing happens.
