Cant install SQL Server '05 EE, VB 2005, or Visual Web Dev 2005

hi! i just joined this group today after a colleague told me about it.
anyway, i'm new to SQL and haven't tried installing any version of it.
I do have vb 6.0 though on my pc. My problem is that I can't install
SQL server 05 EE, VB 2005 or VW 2005. I have downloaded all of the
installer from the Microsoft site as well as the dotnetfix which is
supposed to install the .net framework 2.0.

whenever i try to install SQL server EE, it is telling me that it has
found beta components. but i don't have any beta versions of SQL. I
tried uninstalling my Vb 6.0 thinking its causing the error, but same
thing happened.

The next thing I did is I uninstall my .net 2.0 and when i try to
install VB or VW 2005, i got to the step where it is trying to download
the .net framework 2.0 but it is taking so long. Question: is the
dotnetfix.exe which installed .net 2.0, different from the .net 2.0
that the setup.exe of VB2005 will download? if yes, may i know if there
is a direct site where i can manually download and install it so the
VB2005 will just skip that part and go on with the installation?

When i downloaded the exe files for SQL, .net 2.0, VB and VW, i did
select the SAVE option and saved them on my external mini hard drive so
I can install it at home. Does that make any difference? could that
cause the error?

pretty clear that i am a newbie with this stuff and i never thought
that it would be this hassle to install them heheheh any help, in a
detailed way if possible, would highly be appreciated.

thanks so much!

EE = Express Edition or Enterprise Edition?

I can't speak for Visual Basic, but once installed, in
C:\WINDOWS\Micr osoft.NET\Frame work you should have a directory v2.0.50727.
If you have a lower number, that is a beta version.

Did you ever install a beta of Visual Studio 2005? Apparently you did
install the beta of something since you get the message. And that would be
a beta of SQL 2005, .Net Fx or VS 2005.

hi erland. Sorry for that one, i meant Express Edition (EE). Im sure I
did not install any beta versions of any kind for this matter as I just
have reformatted my hard drive cuz i upgraded my motherboard just 3
nights ago. also, I checked my .net 2.0 folder and yes, i do have the
v2.0.50727 directory. btw, im not sure if it will help, i have winxp
sp2.

Hm, if the install is that fresh, then it the easiest way would be
to start over again, and then start with installing .Net Fx followed
by SQL Server, and then Visual Basic and Visual Web Developer. (But
avoid the other junk you usually cram in. :-)

I installed SQL Server Enterprise 64-bit. The installation seemed to go fine, except the only thing listed under "MicroSoft SQL Server 2005" is "Configuration Tools" in the startup menu. I have no Management Tools. Visual Studio 2005 is also installed on the box, and I read that because VS installs SQL Express, that this can be a problem. Okay, so what do I do now? I can't get the installation program to

Hello, I'm having some problems installing Visual Studio 2005. I'll briefly explain what's the history of the problem here. First I installed VS 2005 beta 2. I uninstalled it later via the Windows Uninstall Tool you can download. Then I installed Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition ENU. This was a trial version for 180 days.

I have Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) and the SS 2005 Developer that comes with it, all of which I can install on my local XP box. 1. Which one do I install first, VSTO or SS 2005 Developer?? 2. Regardless of which one is installed first, what's the best way after that to move or copy database objects like tables, queries, reports, etc. from the XP/developer box to an SS 2005 Server?? Thank you, Tom
