I received following error message during the installation of SQL Server 2008 client. SQL Server 2005 is already installed on same machine which is also required.

Please help... how can install SQL Server 2008 without uninstalling SQL Server 2005
Your prompt action will be highly appreciated.

Issue will be resolved after rename the entry of 90 name folder in registery on the following path.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > Microsoft SQL Server > 90
Solution:
