    Problems with MS SQL SERVER 2005

    Hi

    I m having a problem while installing MS SQL SERVER 2005!

    Initially I had the Developer edition, which got corrupted without giving me a single clue....why it happend!

    And later to free some space, i uninstalled all the SQL components from add/remove programs!

    Now, i have this Enterprise edition which when i tried to install went till the last and cropped up with an error:

    "A component that you have specified in the ADD_LOCAL property is already installed. To upgrade the existing component, refer to the template.ini and set the UPGRADE property to the name of the component."

    what to do??

    i have tried removing the instance from my control panel and re-installing but the same error popped up again!

    I have no clue.....so kindly guide me out of it!!

    You might want to start by trying it on a supported OS. XP ain't one of them. I don't even know if you can fake it to install on XP. It's missing some major requirements right there.

    guidance = install on 2000 Server (sp4) or 2003 Server or download the free Desktop version.

    Well...i didnt get that completely!

    I have installed SQL Server 2000 and the SQL SERVER 2005 Express Edition on my Windows XP earlier and they worked fine.

    So, I think the current version i.e. SQL SERVER 2005 Enterprise Edition must also work normally. Do u think, it requires some server component that might be present in the SERVER OS and not the CLIENT OS?

    Thanks

    n installing a new OS will b a bit difficult for me. coz this I m using on my own standalone home machine for doing out a project.....and I may not be able to get a new OS at this point of time!

    Any other things, u might want to suggest?

    I think the key word here is

    "Enterprise Edition"

    and no...it aint gonna work on a workstation OS

    aah....yes...that can be the thing!

    maybe the enterprise edition is accustomed to work on only SERVER OS and not the CLIENT OS!

    In that case, I can arrange a different edition of SQL....coz thats part of the deal from where i got this thing! So which edition should i go for?
