I am attempting to install SQL Server 2000 on Microsoft Windows XP, but I keep receiving this error message: “Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition server component is not supported on this operating system." What steps can I take to get rid of this message?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

According to this site, you need a Server OS for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition to install. XP will not work.
******************************************************************************

The only editions which you can install on a Workstation OS are Express, Personal and Developer. Workstation, Standard and Enterprise all require a Server OS to install.
