.net framework 3.5 SP1 installation problems on Windows 7 x64

Hi everyone.  I'm having a big trouble installing .net framework 3.5 SP1 on my Windows 7 Professional (x64) OS.I've tried to install it but only thing it says is 'installation error' at the end of installation.  Strangely, it doesn't even give me an error code.I thought it could be having problem with previous versions of .net framework so I tried to varify this with the tool I've found on MSDN, and I only realized I couldn't verify any of .net framework product on my OS.  (neither of 2.0 3.0 or 3.5)This doesn't really make sense because I've freshly installed Windows 7 a week ago and not letting me install the program.  I've tried by doing web installation and tried to download the whole package and install it but still no luck.plus, i am not even sure if this varification program really works.. I wiped out 1.0 and 1.1 using cleanup tool and reinstalled 1.1, and it's still saying it is not installed.  And it even says i have 2.0 3.0 and 3.5 installed.......which i wasn't able to do..  any thoughts?[10/22/09,14:46:50] Beginning of new SetupVerifier activity logging session[10/22/09,14:46:50] Activity log file location: C:\Users\Jin\AppData\Local\Temp\setupverifier_main_10-22-09_14.46.50.txt[10/22/09,14:46:50] Error log file location: C:\Users\Jin\AppData\Local\Temp\setupverifier_errors_10-22-09_14.46.50.txt[10/22/09,14:46:50] Build created on October 19, 2009[10/22/

sql 2008 installation question, windows installer version check?


sql 2008 installed, but didn't get pop up for windows installer 4.5, though intallation complete, but still wants to confirm the windows installer version, however, the windows 2008 seems not like w2k3 to show all windows components you installed, I only see .net 3.5sp1 on the appwiz.cpl

Adding a second node to a SQL 2005 Windows 2003 cluster - NewbieQ



I've been asked to replace the hardware for one of our SQL 2005 cluster nodes because of it's age etc etc..  I have evicted the node from the cluster and added in the new one but now have to add the SQL component to it.  I'm not familiar with this bit!  I have found this guide on Technet


Which seems to be exactly what I need but I have a few questions;

1.  Do I install SQL 2005 on the new node and then perform the steps in the guide above or will it be installed as part of the process following the steps above?

2. Will the current active node go offline or anything like that during the installation? 

3. Do I run the setup from the new node or the current active node?

Sorry for all the questions but I'm new the clustering side of things and dont want to mess this bit up

Thanks in advance


Migration of Analysis Services 2005 Cluster (Windows 2003) to Analysis Services 2005 (Windows 2008)



I need to migrate my SQL Server and Analysis Services cluster from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008, I have found an article for SQL ID (953200), but I cannot find anything for Analysis Services, does such a guide exist?




Depending on SQL2005 services on Windows 2003 Cluster



We have an SQL2005 cluster that is running ESRI ArcSDE. ESRI suggests that it depends on SQL Agent and this is how we have the resource dependency setup. We had a situation that we had to take SQL Agent offline and then abck online and this caused ArcSDE to stop as well. ArcSDE needs SQL to be active rather than SQL Agent and there could be other occasions that SQL Agent is in trouble and needs to be stopped/started as is used for our database backups. Is there a better dependency we could use or have we setup the dependency in the clustered services incorrectly?




Upgrading Windows 2003 Server with .Net Framework 2.0 SP2


We have multiple websites deployed onto Windows 2003 WebServer running under .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 version and now we want to upgrade it to .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, so just wanted to check that after upgrading the .NET Framework on the server do we also need to re-deploy the websites by recompiling them in .NET Framwork 2.0 SP2 version or it's not necessary as they will automatically start referencing the latest assemblies?

Your early response will be much appreciated...

SQL 2008 R2 Cluster unattended setup on Windows Server 2003

All the Docs on setup parameters state that the default for FILESTREAMLEVEL is 0 (filestream disabled) however whether it is defaulted or supplied as 0 the setup fails during installation because KB937444 is not applied to W2K3. Presumably this is because even if the filestream is disabled the software is still installed. But if this is a Pre Requisite why is this not validated at the start??
