|Updated on||April 30, 2008|
One of the most requested features on Windows Web Server 2008 is SQL Server support for local web applications. When SQL Server 2008 ships later this year, Standard and above editions will install easily on Windows Server 2008. However, we wanted to go the extra mile and support SQL Server 2005 on Windows Web Server 2008 today! For customers who want to use SQL Server 2005, please download and install this hotfix on Windows Web Server 2008.
This hotfix will allow the SQL Server 2005 installer to complete succesfully on Windows Web Server 2008 (x64 edition).
By unblocking the SQL Server 2005 installer, this hotfix will allow the integration between local web applications and SQL Server 2005 on Windows Web Server 2008.
This hotfix is intended for the installation SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition (or higher) on Windows Web Server 2008.
The hotfix targets a x64 machine.
