Problems installing SQL Server 2005 on Vista

Problems installing SQL Server 2005 on Vista

We have a PC with Windows Vista installed on it and are havingproblems installing the Developer Edition of Sql Server 2005 on it.The installation completes but some components will not install. Vista prompts with the incompatability message and suggests that weget the V2 service pack, which we have.


I installed SQL Server2005 Developer Edition + SP2
I've seen pop up a few times so I thought I'd share a few quick tips / tricks to getting SQL Server 2005 to work on Vista.
If you see an error saying "Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is either not installed or is disabled.", but you're sure you did in fact install IIS7, you are not alone. There are several required IIS components for SQL Server to install properly on Vista and if you don't have the complete set you will see this error.
Download - Microsoft IIS7 From below Link:

Download - Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 From below Link:
