Your version of SQL Server 2008 isn't compatible with this version of Windows

Fresh Win7 Ultimate install. Fresh VS2010 Ultimate install. Now trying to install Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 Management Studio Express. I get a dialog that says, "Your version of SQL Server 2008 isn't compatible with this version of Windows." There is a link provided Click to download the update from the Microsoft Corporation website. That link leads me to the download for SQL Server 2008 Express Edition Service Pack 2 – CTP. And THAT link leads to a VERY scary installer. Is this REALLY what I'm supposed to do? Thanks Eric

SQL Server Compact v3.5 SqlCeEngine.Upgrade method not working on PocketPC 2003/Windows Mobile 2003

When trying to use the SqlCeEngine.Upgrade(string connectionString) method i get the following exception:

The Parameter is incorrect.
at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeEngine.ProcessResults()
at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeEngine.Repair()
at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeEngine.Upgrade()
at Vbi.Compact.ErbisPda.Client.Program.Main()

The same code works like a charm on a Windows Mobile 2005 device. I installed "SQL Server Compact v3.5 Core" and "SQL Server Compact v3.5 Repl" on both devices, the WCE4/Armv4 version on Pocket PC 2003 and the WCE5/Armv4i version on Windows Mobile 2005.

I am hoping someone can help me with this problem, its being a showstopper.

[edit]Please note that i am using v3.5 and not v3.5 SP1. This is because for some of our data access we use a 3rd party library that needs v3.5 without SP1. Also i didn't run across above problem when i deployed my application from Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (debugging), it does occur on a clean system with only the two mentioned SQL Server Compact cabs installed and our app.[/edit]



I have SQL Server 2008 Standard installed. Do I need to install the Compact version separately


if I want to use the Compact version?

BTW, how do I convert an Access database to an SQL Compact database? Thanks for helping a newbie.

Utilizing SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition (ENU) on a Windows 7 (64-bit) Platform


Dear MSDN experts,

Windows Update has automatically installed SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition (ENU) along with numerous Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable downloads, an 2005 ATL Update, and Framework.NET 4.0. I am a computer novice but because of these updates, I am interested in applying Microsoft developer tools. I would like to know the best approach to utilize these installs and am trying to ask appropriate questions to the most relevelant forms.

I have searched the Learn Category in MSDN and the closest approach I have found is to obtain what I believe are the necessary packages to apply SQL Server namely, the 2008 Management Studio (what is the best version and download source?), Visual Studio (what is the best version and download source?), and/or SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition Online Books (can I read them online or do I have to download them?). Are these packages available to me and are they free?

Will the utilization of this server allow me access to external databases for import to Microsoft Access and Excel? So far I am puzzled as how to sign in on any server source.

Thank you for the time and effort for this humble student to get initiated in MSDN Development. fcZZ.

Word Automation Issue in Windows Server 2008 Hosting



The problem I am posting here is that I was facing nearly 2 weeks around. Any body comes with this stuff please help.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.

With Regards,


No ASPNET User in Windows Server 2008?


I have been looking everywhere online regarding this, but have not found a clear answer.


I have an ASP.Net app running on Windows Server 2008, it's basically a reporting app using Crystal Reports. I have encountered a roadblock in regards to rendering some pages. When I run the app in Visual Studio(on the same 2008 machine) everything works perfectly. Yet when I publish it and run it live the reports will not display correctly, I get a message saying Failed to render page.


I looked this error up in the Crystal Reports website and the fixes they have there refer to giving the windows "aspnet" user full access rights to certain folders on the machine. I would be happy to do this, however there is no aspnet user in Windows Server 2008.


I installed the server and set its role to be Web Server. I also checked all the options regarding ASP.Net and IIS 6 compatibility. Yet there is no ASPNET username anywhere.


Did I set the server up wrong? or do I have to do something within ASP.Net to  create this user and then give it rights? 

Not working on Windows Server 2008




I had the CSS friendly adapters working great on our old server (windows server 2003 - 32bit) and now we have moved to a 64 bit environment and now I can not get the CSS friendly adapters to work.

We are using SharePoint 2007.

Is there another work thru for 64bit environment.

I notice windows server 2008 has a directory  C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64 would I be using the browser file in this directory???

Please help!

Mobility: Add Keyboard Support to Compact Framework Apps by Trapping Windows Messages


The Compact Framework Control class doesn't provide direct access to Windows messages. However, with P/Invoke, a few lines of native code, and the Compact Framework MessageWindow class, it's still possible to access underlying Windows messages. This can be used to work around any .NET Framework features, including keyboard support, that are not included in the Compact Framework.

Windows Server 2003: Discover Improved System Info, New Kernel, Debugging, Security, and UI APIs


There's a lot to say about Windows Server 2003. First of all, it's the first operating system with built-in .NET Framework support, and it's the first 64-bit OS from Microsoft. But wait, there's more! There are lots of new features and APIs in this version as well. For instance, Windows Server 2003 features Hot Add Memory and a number of other arcane new tidbits. There are new APIs for handling threads, directories, and files, and new features like the low fragmentation heap for managing memory and system information. There's vectored exception handling and new UI APIs as well.OS internals expert Matt Pietrek takes a look at the additions he finds most interesting and useful so you'll have a good place to start when you dive into Windows Server 2003.
