SQL Server 2005 Installation on Windows 2000 Server

Hi All,

We want to install sql server 2005 on Windows 2000 Server. We are able to install database service engine, analysis services engine and integration services.

But we are unable to install workstation components like SSMS.

Does anybody faced this problem? What is the fix for this?

Thanks, Raghu

Please can you include in your question what the error messages were, if any, and what happened .v. what you expected to happen?

We do not get any error messages. Even if we select workstation compnents in setup options it does not install. We get warning messages when setup runs some rules like IE6 SP 1 is not available.

Ok, given the clarification above, it seems pretty likely that you're hitting the same issue as this blogger.

Basically, the crux of what he was saying is that previously installed components confused the 2005 installer, so he renamed the 'Tools' directory to 'ToolsBak' and then used Add/Remove programs to change the installation, which repaired it.

Hope that helps.

I did what is mentioned in the blog. But again it did not install.

Are the files installed into the Tools directory at all? Also have you tried installing the SQL Server 2008 management studio?

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
