Problem With Installing SQL Server 2005

Posted 07 July 2010 - 05:22 AM

hi evry body

I wanna install Microsoft SQL Server 2005, but after installing prerequisites I have just one option: Workstation components, books online... and rest of them(like SQL Server Database servises) are off

I recently changed my windows and didn't install SQL Server
what's the problem? what should I do?
thank you,

Attached File(s)

Well which OS are you running? It looks as if the only thing available to you is the workstation components

Ok to the best of my knowledge you cannot install/run the SQL Server components on Windows XP, it needs to be a server OS. All you can run are the client componets which are used to connect to a SEL server

I had the same problem when trying to install sql server 2005 on my development box. What i had to do was instead of trying to install Enterprise edition was to install developer edition.
