SQL Server 2008 CTP 5


  • I received a copy of SQL Server 2008 CTP 5 with my Microsoft Action pack. My understanding is that this DVD contains extra features, since i do not see any setup.exe. 

    Does anyone know if Microsoft actually mailed the SQL Server 2008 application files or does one have to go to and download those files?

  • CTP5 is history, and it's pointless to install it. You can get RC0 which is the latest (and presumably last) preview of
    SQL 2008 from

    I downloaded the RC0 version and get a framework error on setup.

    It says i need .net framework 2.0 sp1 x64 cbs, but when i download that file, it says it will not run on server vista?

    Has anyone else encountered this issue?
