Absolutely. Essentially ignore the "this program has compatibility issues" messages, install Developer edition, then patch immediately to SQL Server 2005 SP2.

Yes it's possible.

I am not sure what were the errors but I had some problems after installation about starting the server and browsing the databases.

If I remember correctly I setup the authentication as being Windows + SQL Server and then did something.



Kindest Regards,

Once you install SP2 - the Provisioning tool for Vista should launch - be sure to set up some users/admin group so that they can run the client correctly.

If you accidentally cancel out of the provisioning tool and you run into a situation where the service isn't running at the time, you can execute it manually:

SQL Provisioning Tool (SQL Server 2005 SP2)
