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".
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)
