I am getting the following message when I try to install SQL Management Studio on a 64 bit Windows 7 Premium Dell Laptop.
The message is: Sqlserver 2008 Setup requires Microsoft .net Framework 3.5 SP1 to be installed.
I have downloaded the Service pack and attempted to install as Adminstrator (Dotnetfx35setup.exe). It comes up and asks if I want to run it, but nothing ever loads. I don't know if a registry setting is conflicting
with the installation or what.
This computer came with Vista Home Premium 64bit and we installed the upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (in case this has something to do with it.) I have 2008 SQL Express running without problem along with Visual Studio 2008.
Any advice or suggestions to try would be appreciated.
