I keep getting errors when I try to install SQL server 2008 R2. It will go in but not the database and that is what I need installed. Can SQL server 2008 r2 be install on windows 7? Can someone please help me I been trying to figure this out for days.
This is when I try to manual start the sql server mssqlserver.
2008R2 requires .Net Framework 3.5 SP1. You can check if you 3.5 SP1 by navigating to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Net Framework Setup\NDP\3.5. The version number should be 3.4.30729.nnnn. If you don't have it, you will need to install it. If you don't have access to registry, look up the Product Version of some of the exe's in %systemroot%\Microsoft.Net\Framework64\v3.5
