Installing SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was trying to install SQL Server 2012 Enterprise on Windows Server 8 Consumer Preview. I understand the fact that SQL Server cannot be installed in top a Debug Version of OS. Howerver I was looking for a work around, also if somebody was able to install it on Windows Server 8, please help me out here.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello,

    I have installed SQL Server 2012 RC0 on Windows Server 8 Beta. It works great. My only suggestion is before starting the installation of SQL Server 2012, please enable the feature .Net Framework 3.5 from the command line. After that start the installation of SQL Server 2012 and you will be able to finish it without any issue.


    Hope this helps.
