  • Hello,

    I am sure it will work with the following virtualization software:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/

    You will be surprised with integration between the physical machine and virtual machine. I use it with my students at two universities.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Again,

    Think one of your original suggestions should work... but you may havce missed a step...

    My solution: -

    Copied all the DVD contents to the local C: drive on the virtual system, into a temp folder...

    Uninstalled all components that installed OK... Rebooted... then went through the SQL directories created by installer deleting all the files created but not removed in program files folders... Rebooted...

    Then run install from temp folder... worked ok :-)

  • Error message 2337 translates to 

    "There are no shared communication devices."

    So maybe that gives you an idea. Also, please post the contents of the C:\Program files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\setup bootstrap\log\Summary.txt file here for starters.

    Hi Paul,

    When you say copy all the DVD contents, how is that different than extracting the ISO with WinZip or WinRAR?

    Which files are created by the installer that need to be deleted? Or should I just assume date is the definitive way to separate them?
