Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3 Feature Pack
Posted on 2013-05-13
I am trying to install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3 Feature Pack on my Windows 8 box (64 bit, Intel processor) Every time I try to install it comes back with a compatibility issue. I can successfully install on a Windows 7 box, just not on my Windows 8 box. I have tried all kinds of work-arounds including making sure the .NET architecture was correct, etc.
I am stumped. I have had no W8 issues until now. Is there another MSQL server download for W8 64bit? Any ideas would be appreciated.
