I have the machine with installed the Windows 7 Enterprise N edition. I have installed the sql server 2008 also there . so can i install MOSS 2007 on such connfiguration? if not what should i do. i tried to install but showing not compitible prompt. what have to do? is wss3.0 already present in windows 7 like windows server 2003 ? I know i can do this by virtual PC installation , but i don't want right away to virtualize machine.
