In the past, I go into trouble because I didn't installed/activated the following in a proper order.
- SQL Server 2014 and maybe SQL Express 2014 as well.
- VS 2012 Ultimate and maybe VS 2013
- Activate IIS.
ASP.net, SSRS, SSIS, SSAS
Q1: Is this sequence correct: SQL Server, Activate IIS, and VS 2012 Ultimate correct order?
At one point, I recall (if I am not mistaken), for SSRS, IIS activation was required prior to SQL Server installation.
Q2: Any comment on this you may have?
And, also, apparently IIS has to be done before VS installation (when I was trying the process with vs 2008 or 2010).
Q3: Is IIS handled differently with VS 2012 or VS 2013? Is activation done the same way as the prior versions or it is activated automatically (or differently)?
Q4: Any other advise you may have to make sure I will have good installations?
