    Unanswered: Problems with installing SQL Server 2000

    I am trying to install SQL Server 2000 from the MSDN DVDs on Windows Server 2003 Web Edition.

    When I click on Install Database Server, the "Created with Demoshield" box comes up and then disappears. Nothing else happens. I have also tried to install by running from ENT\x86\SETUP\SETUPSQL.EXE. This gives me a message saying "Windows cannot open this program since it has been disabled".

    I tried a Google search for that error message, and found two results, this at http://dbforums.com/arch/4/2003/9/925380 :

    "hi,

    Try installing as an administrator."

    I am trying to install as an administrator.

    The other was in German, but was only a list of error codes anyway.

    Does anyone know how I can get this to work? I am supposed to have IIS6 up and running before my boss gets back on Monday, and I can't even get SQL installed, which is a prerequisite for IIS.

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

    You are going to need Standard or Enterprise version of Windows 2003 Server... Web Edition is exactly that, a stripped down version for web server use, not for application server use (such as SQL Server)

    http://www.microsoft.com/sql/evaluat...00/default.asp

    only thing you can run on the Web Edition is MSDE

    also... SQL Server shouldn't be a prerequisite for IIS... unless you have an application that requires IIS AND SQL Server, it is not a requirement for IIS alone
