I had a hard drive failure at work so had to reinstall my whole development environment :(
I installed Windows 7 Professional.
I installed Visual Studio 2005 full install.
It suggested I installed Service Packs for the components to make them compatitible with Windows 7.
Windows update attempted to install "Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3" which always fails.
I looked at the help that came with the failure error and it said to got to "Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Visual Studio 2005 SQL Server -> Change" then finish up the suspended installation.
I do this and the installation asks for "sqlrun_sql.msi" which I cannot find on any installation disc or anywhere on the internet.
I have tried to repair Visual Studio 2005 and that didn't help.
Will reinstalling Visual Studio 2005 help.
This is so annoying as everytime I shutdown, windows trys to install the VS SQL update and it fails.
