Install SQL server 2008 in win8.1 (error : compatibility issues) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi it's Omka,

      I've been trying to install sql 2008 express on my win8.1 for almost a week now.When installing the program it has a pop up window with "compatibility issue", but I just ignore that continued the installation, then this appeared

    TITLE: SQL Server Setup failure.

    SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error:

    Invoke or BeginInvoke cannot be called on a control until the window handle has been created..



    After that I've tried changing the compatibility mode to windows xp(SP3), but it's not working, "restart computer" in setup support  is having error. 

    Do I need to install other version of SQL or change any settings ?

    Please help :)
