SQL server 2008 download problem - browse for sql server intallation media

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Ive downloaded the asp.net framework from the "getting started" section twice today.  Once on my PC which has windows 7 and once on my laptop which has vista.  Both ended up with the same problem.

Once it  is all downloaded I go to the "sql server installation centre" in my programs list and  then select the "new installation" link at the top, I am asked to "Browse for SQL server installation media."  I have tried to browse for this but cannot find it anywhere.  I have searched web forums for help and some have mentioned that its an error with windows 7 and to try and download visual studio which has all the componants needed for SQL Server to run.  I tried this and hit the same wall. 

I have spent all day tring to find a solution for this but to no avail. I find it very confusing when reading up on exactly what I need to download.  I am a PHP developer and have never done anything with ASP before.  I just want a quick and simple solution to be able to get my website & database up and running.  I have a .bak file that I need to import into the database which I would have thought would be very straight forward?!?

I would appreciate any help with this.  Many thanks in advance.

Problem opening dotnet 1.1 projet on 2008 web server


 We recently upgraded to a 2008 development web server and I installed all the stuff to get dot net 1.1 app working on the server.  I can host them and they work.  My problem is that when I try to open one in VS 2003 I get the following error.  I set up the web server the same as my previous one, and I think a long time  ago I got this error when we set up current one but do not remember how to resolve it.  So I moved my project files from the old server to the new server and then I get these errors. 


The web Server reported the following error when attempting to create or open the Web Project located at the following url: Http://localhost:/MobTracker. 'Http/1.1 500 server error

Problem adding .NET 3.5.1 feature on Server 2008 R2

Having an issue with a 2008 R2 64-bit Server becoming unresponsive/locking up when trying to activate the .NET 3.5.1 feature.  Did not have any previous version of .NET installed but ran the .NET Cleanup utility and completed successfully but still have same issue.  It installed .NET 4 via the Microsoft Updates OK but still hangs part way through the 3.5.1 install via the Server Manager/Add Features.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Problem connecting to SQL Server 2008 R2 Express from Access 2007

I have a problem with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with MS Access 2007. I am running Windows 7 with 8 gigs memory. I installed SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. Do I now need to install SP1 because I am running with Windows 7? I can open SQL Server using the Management Screen but I cannot connect to MS Access 2007 using SQL Server Express as the database. When trying to connect to SQL Server from Access 2007, I keep getting the message that SQL Server 2005 cannot be found. It will not allow me to sign onto sql server 2008 stating that it cannot be found. Do I have to now run the SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP1? Is there an upgrade to MS Access 2007 which will allow me to use SQL Server 2008 R2 Express?

Compatibility problem: an "sql server 2008 R2" db backup cannot be restored to an "sql server 2008"

To verify if the "2008 R2" version can be restored back to a "2008" dbserver I make an experiment:  construct a database on R2 version ( version : 10.50.xxx )  and backup it; then I try to restore the db backup to a "sql server 2008" db-server ( version : 10.0.xxx ) but get failed. Error message is as shown: The database was backed up on a server running version 10.50.1600. That version is incompatible with this server, which is running version 10.00.2531. Either restore the database on a server that supports the backup, or use a backup that is compatible with this server.   Originally I want to upgrade a "2008" server to "2008 r2" , but this problem withdraws me: if I do so , I am afraid all the existing clientuser's dbs cannot be backed up to themselves if they don't have "2008 r2" locally:   if a database is backed up under "2008 r2" environment whereas client user only has "2008" db server, does it mean he cannot restore it anymore?   So I wonder if there is an approach that helps me to create a "backward-compatible" database; when creating database on wizard there is an option to choose "compatibility level" but I don't think it meets my requirement..    Anyone can help me on this ??    

Sharepoint 2003 + Windows Terminal Server 2008 + Office 2007 problem?

Hi, We have a customer where some users runs Windows Terminal Server 2008 with Office 2007. They open documents from a Sharepoint 2003 site. When they open an excel sheet they get a button in the document which says "Server workbook: Click edit workbook to edit this workbook" and there is a button: "edit workbook" The users clicks "edit workbook" but get an error message saying there is no connection to the server.  They are able to edit the document, but not save it back to the sharepoint site. Most other users work on their local computer with Office 2003. Here, everything works fine and there are no button/message stating its a server workbook.   Is this caused due to some compatability issues between Sharepoint 2003 and Office 2007?   Best regards, Thomas Hansen ErgoGroup AS

SQL*Server 2008 SP1 applied but still tries to download and install from Windows Update

I had previously posted this on the windows update forum and was advised here was more appropriate. I have installed SQL*Server Express 2008 on laptop with windows7 and appled the SP1 update. This shows as applied correctly when looking at programs/updates from control panel, update logs. The management console confirms version 10.1.2531 is running. Each time I use windows update  the service pack is listed as needing download / install - the same KB968369 is given as the reference. I have run this a couple of times but the update is shown as outstanding each time. Any ideas how to resolve this? Thanks Colin

Help with an InvalidCastException with Windows Media Services on Windows Server 2008 R2

Hi, I developed an application that utilizes content from Windows Media Services. The entire application was written in C# on a Windows Server 2008 x86 environment using the interop assemblies provided by Microsoft. Everything works fine, except when I try to run the application on a 64-bit machine. When I run the application on the 64-bit machine, I get the following error: Unable to cast COM object of type 'Microsoft.WindowsMediaServices.Interop.WMSServerClass' to interface type 'Microsoft.WindowsMediaServices.Interop.IWMSServer'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{845FB958-4279-11D2-BF23-00805FBE84A6}' failed due to the following error: Error loading type library/DLL. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80029C4A (TYPE_E_CANTLOADLIBRARY)). I tried looking for an updated interop assembly, but couldn't locate anything newer than the one that I was already using. Does anyone know how to get over this hurdle?

OPENROWSET Problem with FoxPro and SQL Server 2008 on Windows 2008 R2

I currently have stored procedures running in SQL2K on a Win2K3R2 that gather data from our over 1500 free-table Foxpro databases. The stored procedures use MSDASQL and the VFP ODBC driver. This has been working well since at least 2005. I am now in a situation where I need to port the SQL databases over to SQL2K8 on Win2K8R2. I have a 32-bit SQL instance running so that I can still use the Foxpro drivers. I have installed the VFPODBC and the VFP OLE DB drivers and configured the Providers in the SQL instance to "Allow Inprocess" and not "Disallow adhoc access", and all those wonderful things, I have it to the point where when logged on locally to the SQL2K8 I can run either one of these statements below successfully:  SELECT number FROM OPENROWSET('MSDASQL', 'Driver=Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver;SourceDB=\\RMFS\FOXPRO\CLIENT1\CLIENTDB;SourceType=DBF', 'SELECT number FROM ARCUSTMR') or  SELECT number FROM OPENROWSET('VFPOLEDB', '\\RMFS\FOXPRO\CLIENT1\CLIENTDB'; ' '; ' ', 'SELECT number FROM ARCUSTMR') However, if I try to run the same query from my PC (and a Domain Admin) I get the following errors respectively: OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "(null)" returned message "[Microsoft][ODBC Visual FoxPro Driver]File 'arcustmr.dbf' does not exist.". Msg 7350, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 Cannot
