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.
