I tried installing SQL Server 2008 R2 on my machine running Windows 7 starter but got an error:
An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.VC80.MFCLOC,version="8.0.50727.1833",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",processorArchitecture="x86",type="win32"'. Please refer to Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x800736B3.
Is there a way to fix this? Or is SQL Server 2008 not compatible with my OS??
