I'm having terrible problems trying to install SQL Server 2008 Enterprise on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. First the install kept failing because it said .NET 3.5 wasn't installed (although it was). I got around this by replacing the .Net install file in the SQL Server install directories with what I had downloaded and run successfully.
Now the install is failing on the wrong Windows Installer version (it says I need version 4.5). I went out to the windows download, http://www.microsoft.com/DownLoads/...aylang=en,
and selected Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-x86.msu (I have a 32 bit dual core processor). This is a new server - not an upgrade. I have an ACVPI x86Based PC. Intel dual core E2180 processor. When I try to install the 4.5 installer I get a message: "The update does not apply to your system".
Any help is greatly appreciated.
