    1) If you don't have Visual Studio 2008 installed and have never installed a SQL Server 2008 CTP build,
    SQL Server 2008 RTM comes with everything you need and you should not encounter this problem.

    2) If have Visual Studio 2008 installed, you must install VS 2008 SP1 before you install SQL Server 2008 RTM (or don't pick features that require it).

    3) If you do not have VS 2008 installed but are encountering this problem, do not attempt to install VS 2008 SP1.
    Rather, uninstall Visual Studio 2008 Shell (integrated mode) and Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2.0.
    You should then be allowed to proceed with the installation.

    4) SQL Server 2008 RTM comes with the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 final release.
    This requirement is independent of the binaries we need from VS 2008 SP1.
    There is no need for you to run any update to the .Net Framework after installing SQL Server 2008.

    5) If you install Visual Studio 2008 RTM after installing SQL Server 2008 RTM,
     you must install VS 2008 SP1 to be supported if you are using the features in SQL Server that depend on
     VS 2008 SP1 (BIDS, Integration Services, or Management Tools).

  • Hi,

    What sort of instructions are you looking for?

    SQL 2005 and 2008 can run along side each other - but one will have to be a named instance.

    I don't know about visual studio but BIDS (the version which comes with SLQ Server) can also run along side each other.
