Is it possible to install SQL Server Enterprise Manager onto Windows Vista Ultimate?

Is it possible to install SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager onto Windows Vista Ulimate?  I keep on trying to run the install and nothing comes up when I try to do so.  What should I do if I want to install Enterprise Manager onto Windows Vista Ultimate?

Try running it in legacy mode of XP.  Also make sure you are running as administrator.

There is a special 'Win XP' feature in the service pack 2, I can't remember for SP 1.
It's on the last window and is called something like 'run installer for Vista compliancy.'

I don't run Vista yet, so I never ran it, but you can give it a try once running in 'XP mode'.
... and if you did, can you tell me about it ... please ?!

Hope this helps ...
I just installed Vista and was disappointed to find out I could not longer user SQL 2000. However, I took a shot in the dark and was able to install the client tools (Enterprise Manager and Query Analyzer) without running in legacy XP mode too! I can't connect to my local SQL 2008 instance, but I can connect to the other SQL 2000 databases on my network.
