Install SQL Server on Vista

Posted 11 January 2009 - 06:43 AM

Hello everyone,

I tried to install SQL Server enterprise on my Windows Vista x64 Enterprise version, but failed. Seems SQL Server can not be installed on client platform (e.g. Vista)?

I want to setup DB and debug store procedure on my desktop. Anyone knows whether SQL Server can be installed on Vista Enterprise x64 version?

thanks in advance,
George

George,
Not sure if it can be installed on Enterprise 64, but I do know that it can be installed on the Home Edition 64. That is what I run on my laptop, and I didn't have any issues with the install, or running the db.

You should get the Developer Edition. It contains all Enterprise Features, but will install on Vista. Last time I checked, it was about $50 at Programmers Paradise.

Hope this helps.

I am confused. If Developer edition is the same as Enterprise edition, why it is so cheap? People would buy Developer edition to save money and to have the same function as Enterprise edition. :-)

Not overly sure if it would help but did you think of trying MySQL or PostgreSQL
