Problem installing SQL server 2005 in Windows 7


  • I am also facing many issue while installing SQL Server 2005 (32 bit) - Enterprise Edition on my Windows 7 (64 bit) machine.

    1. First it give me warning related to 'Compatibilty issue'.
    2. Then if I ignore the first one, after certain steps, it shows couple of more errors:
              a. IIS not installed/Started. IIS is installed properly & running though.
              b. ASP.Net is not registered with IIS. In the IIS, ASP.Net is being shown, not sure how to register ASP.Net with IIS then.  Please tell.

    3. At last, most of the components get failed to install.

    And I dont see management studio there, though the setup is not successful other things like Surface Area Configuration etc are available.

    Please help me in installing SQL Server 2005 (32 bit) on Windows 7
