  • Hello,

    With SQL Server 2005, IIS is necessary if you want to install Reporting Services ( with SQL Server 2008, IIS is not used and may be replaced by a folder maybe shared )

    Please, could you tell us what edition of SQL Server 2005 you are installing and also the components you are really needing ?

    Could you have a look here for an explanation for IIS ?

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms144275(SQL.90).aspx

    and for the requirements here

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506(SQL.90).aspx

    But i don't know for COM+ catalog

    Have a nice day

    PS: you may avoid to install Reporting Services because you have not IIS. But if you install IIS later, you will have to register IIS before installing the Reporting Services ( a little remark : it is impossible to install IIS on a XP/Vista/7 Edition , bad luck...)


    Mark Post as helpful if it provides any help.Otherwise,leave it as it is.

  • insert your xp cd.

    go to

    control panel-> add/remove programs-> add/remove windows componets in that window you can found IIS check that box and install.

    After that install sql server you will not get any error.
