SQL2005BC.MSI Will not install on Win7

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I'm trying to get folks here to be able to run their DTS packages on SQL2008. You know and I know they should be converted to SSIS, but that's falling on deaf ears.

I have been able to get the packages to run on XP machines by installing the SQLServer2005_BC.MSI and then SQLServer2005_DTS.msi. 

When I try the same thing on a WIN7 it fails with a (paraphrased) message that the installation failed because it is not supported on this operating system. I realize the 2 packages are 32 bit and the Win7 installs are 64 bit, but I thought I read it would run as a 32 application under WOW.

Am I missing a step?

SqlServer - Windows Account to install Application from Gallery


Referring to this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/download-and-install-an-asp-net-application

I selected umbraco cms and got this wizard:

I already have Standard Sql Server 2005 on my machine which I wanted to us for above DB and not SqlExpress.

I did not remember "sa" account pwd nor I use explicitly any account to connect to my Sqlserver. I use Windows Authentication account i.e implicit authentication. So I created new account and gave all rights and used it in the above wizard and was able to install the database after some struggle.

My question is: What if I want to use my Windows Account to install the database above? Why the wizard don't have any option to use Windows Integrated Authentication?

Note: I can create the DB with external user I created, just looking specifics for using Windows Authentication for above installation.

VWDE 2010 Won't Install Ajax Control Toolkit on XP Pro


To my displeasure I cannot find VWD2005 which at one time would generate a complete web.config for Ajax so I downloaded and installed VWDE 2010 to a clean install of XP Pro.

I've created a new tab on the toolbar for the controls but after I select the Ajax dll to add the controls to the toolbar it grinds away and then goes poof and closes down the task leaving VWD look as if I had never even created the tab in the toolbar. 


Any advice here?

Moved from WinXP to Win7 - don't see choice to open file in read only or edit mode


I just recently moved from Win XP Pro SP3 to Win 7 32-bit Pro. I am logging into domain X normally. Our Sharepoint 2007 server authenticates only on domain Y. So I start Internet Explorer with "run as different user" and provide my domain Y credentials. All fine. 

In win XP, after I did this, when I click on an Excel file on Sharepoint, I would get a dialog asking if I wanted to check out and edit or open as read only. 

In win7, I don't get that choice. The file simply opens, and I get a bar at the top which allows me to check out the file if I wanted to. 

How can I restore the functionality I used to have, with the dialog for checking out the file before opening it?

Attempting to install a Reporting Services for MOSS 2007

So, i have a already set and running MOSS 2007. I am following theese tutorials



But in my case, i have only two machines - one with main site moss and one with reporting services and sql for reporting services.

So far, i have installed SQL server, installed moss and reporting services on the reporting services machine.

I joined my moss into the existing farm successfully.

I've set up reporting services according to the tutorial (Except i use an account provided by test server administrator, which has all rights granted, since we dont bother with least privellege here, not a very big company...)

But when i check the /reportingservices page i see an error (its in russian) that teh server is wrongly configured. rsServerConfigurationError is the kind of error. 

The tutorial said that i should see a blank page at this point. I will continue tutorial futher tomorrow (work day ends now

SQL Server Reporting Services not able to install on Windows Vista Home Premium


Recently I had a weird problem while trying to install SQL Server Reporting Service in my local PC. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and I wanted to configure SSRS in my PC. During the installation, the setup wizard listed all the services that we want to install and I found that only Reporting Server checkbox option was disabled and I wondered why??? I thought it may be becuase of some installation problem and tried again and its useless... I googled lot of sites for 3 days and finally found that due to some IIS issues, it is not possible to install Reporting Server in Vista Home Premium version. Reporting Server needs some specific IIS features to be installed in the machine.

But unfortunately those features are not available for Home Premium users which in term restricts users not to install reporting server in our PCs... Also, Microsoft has accepted it as an issue and its not possible to get it install in Home Premium...just wanted to share and might be useful for someone like me.

[WPF 4] Win7 Touch not works on custom desktop (CreateDesktop, SwitchDesktop)

I am working on an application which should run on a custom desktop created by the CreateDesktop Win32 method. The desktop switching and the custom desktop works well. My application uses WPF 4 with C# and should work on a Win7 based notebook with touchscreen. When running on the normal desktop everything works fine, but when I try to run it on my custom desktop the touch screen does something strange. When I try to click a button using touch, the button visually responds (so the buttons background will be light blue as normally under Vista/7), but the click event never occurs, if I click the button using the mouse everything works fine. > I did some tests and got the following results: [WPF and WinForms] Both mouse and touch events work well on the normal desktop in every case [WPF] Touch events DO NOT WORK on the custom desktop (for eaxmple TouchDown never fires) [WPF] Mouse events with the mouse work well on the custom desktop (Click with mouse) [WPF] Mouse events with touchscreen DO NOT WORK on the custom desktop (Click/Tap with finger) [WinForms] Mouse events with the mouse work well on the custom desktop (Click with mouse) [WinForms] Mouse events with touchscreen WORK WELL on the custom desktop (Click/Tap with finger) > I have also tried some other apps on the custom desktop: Paint works well, also with multi-touch.

Can Not load WPF project in Visual Studio 2005 on Win7 64 system, says "Project file not supported b

Dear all I am facing an issue in creating new wpf project or loading a WPF project in Visual studio 2005. I have installed Visual Studio 2005 Service pack - 1 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=bb4a75ab-e2d4-4c96-b39d-37baf6b5b1dc&displaylang=en) but still I can not see the option for wpf project  while creating a new project. Generally we can see WPF listing under item File -->New-->Project--> ".Net Framework 3.0" in VS 2005. I have few WPF project and when i try to load them it says "Project file not supported by this Installation". My System Config is given below: OS: Windows 7 (64 Bit) VS: Visual Studio 2005 with Service Pack 1 .Net Framework: 3.5 (By default inbuilt in Win7 OS)   I am suspecting something bugging related to .Net framework 3.0 in Win7. We have one option in control panel to alter .NetFramework 3.5 under "Turn Windows Features on or Off" but there I can not see something related to 3.0 :-(.   Kindly suggest how can I load my existing project and how can enable option to create new wpf Projects.   I saw few solutions suggested by people on following Thread bt most of them related to Windows XP or Vista: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vswpfdesigner/thread/06cf7bca-982c-44cf-aec9-99cf399b3000 Do someone has solution for Windows 7 (64 bit OS)
