Error in set up SQL Server 2008 enterprise evaluation edition

Hello,

I couldn't able to install SQL Server 2008 enterprise evaluation edition.

When I install it with "New instance" then it says ".NET framework and updated installer should be in machine". Then I downloaded .net framework 3.5 and tried to install but it is giving "Debugger" window with below message:

"An unhandled win32 exception occured in setup.exe (2952)"

FYI, I've already SQL Server 2005 named instance on my machine. I have Windows XP Professional.

Can anyone help me on this?

Best Regards,

I belive you're correct.
Can you try the downloaded media on another xp using the same architecture, I guess it's X86.

Ps, if not try disabling antivirus when installing.

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Enterprise demands a Windows Server if you attempt to install the server part.
The SSMS is another story.

Se operating system on http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506(v=SQL.100).aspx

So please clarify, are you attempting to install the SQL server, if so please use developer edition, and you'll succeed?

Hello,

I checked on Microsoft website and they say that we can install Enterprise evaluation edition on XP service pack 2; note only evaluation edition.

I did investigate again and found that it gives an error when I wanted to install 3.5 dotnet framework. I think that it is not related to SQL Server.
