Hello this is my first time in Server Fault so I wish people are as accommodating here as in Stack Overflow.
So.. Heres the thing. I need to install SQL Server 2008 Express 32 Bit on a Windows XP environment.
I have already downloaded the installers but when i tried to run the setup it prompt that it needed a .net framework 4.5 installed in the pc.
Here is the exact error message:
Blocking Issues: The .Net Framework 4.5 is not supported on this operating system.
Which is weird since I have seen tutorials on installing SQL Server 2008 in XP.
Anyone please push me in the right direction? Any help would be appreciated.
Ok so I forgot to mention that I need MS Sql Management studio as well...i always thinks this is pre bundled so i didnt note it out. Anyway the accepted answer led me to this link
Thanks Mark :)
