    I've both the developer and enterprise edition of SQL Server 2005. I use windows XP. But I can't install it successfully. Do I need Server Based OS(windows server 2003, 2005 etc) to install SQL Server???

    Everythng is fine but I think the databse is not getting installed. It shows I dnt have IIS installed.

    Wats wrong??? Can't I practise it in XP???


    Plz help. If possible please provide the steps.

    I have installed MS SQL server 2005 in XP , its a supported OS, what error are you getting exactly? can you post the error message? check with Microsoft KB for known issues.

    Hi,
    Windows XP only supports SQL Server 2005 developer Edition.

    1.First install .net framework 2 and windows installer 3.1.
    2.Type Services.msc in RUN and make Distributed Transaction Coordinator service as Autometic and start it.
    3.You can ignore the IIS error as its only required for reporting not for Database service.
    4.If you have installed any version of SQL Server like express, first uninstall them.


    Let me know if you still face the same issue.
