SQL 2005 Dev on Win7 Home x64

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506%28SQL.90%29.aspx says
"SQL Server 2005 is supported on Windows 7 in the same manner as Windows Vista, but SQL Server 2005 SP3 is required."

But SQL Server Dev edition is probably not SP3. (It is from 2006.)

What is the process to install 64 bit SQL Dev 2005 on this Win7 machine.

Thanks

Hope you got it wrongly with the above statement..
In Windows 7, you need SP3 applied on SQL Server 2005 to work and hence Install SQL Server 2005 Dev as usual and then apply SP3 immediately so that SQL Server 2005 Dev can work else it wont work..

And the message it says is a Warning and hence applying SP3 would help..

Have you tried simply running it in compatibility mode for XP?
