I'm trying to install SQL 2005 Enterprise 32-bit on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I get a message 'This program has known compatibility issues.....you must apply SQL server 2005 SP3 before you run SQL Server...'
Later on (in System Configuration Check), I get 3 warnings:
1- SQL Server Edition Operating System Compatibility (Warning)
SQL Server Edition Operating System Compatibility
Some components of this edition of SQL Server are not supported on this operating system. For details, see 'Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2005' in Microsoft SQL Server Books Online.
2- IIS Feature Requirement (Warning)
IIS Feature Requirement
Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is either not installed or is disabled. IIS is required by some SQL Server features. Without IIS, some SQL Server features will not be available for installation. To install all SQL Server features, install
IIS from Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel or enable the IIS service through the Control Panel if it is already installed, and then run SQL Server Setup again. For a list of features that depend on IIS, see Features Supported by Editions of SQL Server
in Books Online.
3- ASP.Net Version Registration Requirement (Warning)
