    Unanswered: SQL 2005 Install Questions - CD has different options then DVD

    I printed out several pages of documentation regarding the install of 2005. When I tried performing the installation from CD I double-click splash.hta, as indicated in "How to: Install SQL Server 2005 (Setup)". Under Install I see two options:

    Server components, tools, Books Online, and samples
    Run the SQL Native Client Installation Wizard

    The documentation indicates I should be clicking on "Run the SQL Server Installation Wizard", which is not an option. If I select "Run the SQL Native Client..." it appears to be only installing the client and does not follow the remainder of the instructions. I can't find any information on Microsoft's site on how to perform an install from CD.

    I'm guessing I should be using the DVD, but has anyone else noticed the "How to" documentation is a little off and have you found any other documentation that is more accurate?

    Thanks, Dave

    I spoke with Microsoft and it turns out the documentation is out of date. All I needed to do was run setup.exe from the Server folder.

    Thanks, Dave
