I hope this was at least a paid entry. Other wise, I'd have to rate it as some seriously overdone SPAM.

Sorry, Not paid and not my intention to SPAM anyone. I was worried about it being over the line but figured I'd at least make a few people chuckle. My mistake.

Perhaps not the most subtle...but that lack of sublety did make me chuckle. And whilst I don't think our company is likely to invest in the software at the moment, it's handy to know that it's available in the marketplace.

I find it unusual that the requirement of SQL Server 2008 is not mentioned until you actually try to install the utility.

Hmmm, I'm not sure how this is SPAM. It's listed as a case study, the description says it's a tool.

We run these sponsored articles, and they are paid for. In this case, I waived the fee for Bill since he's been a great help to the SQL community and a friend.

Sorry... didn't realize that it was a sponsored article in that, if you go directly to the article itself, there's nothing in the article or it's header to indicate that's what it was. I should have known better because people can actually post their own articles. My humble appologies.

People can't post their own articles. They can submit them, but they're all reviewed.

To be honest, it does not really require SQL Server 2008, only the SQL Server 2008 SMO assemblies. However, if you try to target a SQL Server 2008 from a SQL Server 2005 without .NET 3.5 SP1 and 10.0 SMO the results are incomplete. Its the same problem you have with trying to use DMO on a 2005 instance.The backward compatibility scenario is a much better experience. So I decided it was better guidance to point yoou toward SQL Server 2008. I think it is spelled out a little better in the "Installing SQL Clue" help file.

I added that installer check box page with the SQL Server 2008 requirement message last week. The check list is there as a reminder. It helps eliminate confusion about why the install fails when it fails. It also allows you to bail on the installation before anything happens.

The true prerequisites - those checked in the Visual Studio setup project - are Windows Installer 3.1, .NET 3.5 SP1, ReportViewer 2008, and [a minimum of] SQL Server 2005 Express SP2. These can all be downloaded directly from Microsoft (at no cost).

SQLClue is a great first SQL Server 2008 box for the DBA. It is an application fully under the control of the DBA and it uses features new with 2008. While the stuff installs, configures and runs nicely, you get an opportunity to get some time behind the wheel in a low stress but highly useful way before the shop adds a line of business 2008 instance.

And, I even phat-phingered my response... I meant to say "can't" and it came out "can".
