I have tried to install SQL Server 2005 on Windows 2008 64
I have installed SQL server 2005 and
SQL server 2005 SP2, however only the SQL Server 2005 configuration tools
appear. (Everything was selected to install)
I have found these posts which have the same issue, but they are for web server
I have repeated the process on two different servers with the
same results. My understanding from the links above is that this is an issue
that arises from server 2008 begining released after sql 2005. The above links
give a fix location but only for web edition. The patch does not install on
standard. Surely someone must have come across this issue ?
Software/Hardware used: SQL server 2005 standard X64 Windows Server 2008 SP2 x64 Bit
