Can anyone please confirm that installation of SQL2005 Client Components is not possible on windows 64bit?

I tried to install SQL2005 developer on windows7 64bit, everything is fine and installed except SQL Client Components which I mostly need. After a day googling I've been almost persuaded that I can't do that. Can anyone confirm this?

Many Thanks and cheers,
Amir

Sure, but you have to use the 64-bit client. Microsoft has it documented here.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply, but the link you sent is about "SQL Native Client" and I don't have problem with that. I have problem with installing "SQL Clinets' components" i.e. Management Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2005 on 64bit version of Windows.

Any Suggestion?

Cheers,
Amir

There's no reason why you can't just go ahead and install the 32-bit version. As far as I know there is no 64-bit version of SSMS for SQL 2005.

I can confirm 100% that the installation if the SQL 2005 client tools is absolutely possible on 64-bit windows. I've done that installation a number of times and I've been running 64-bit exclusively at home for a number of years.

What errors are you getting?

Thanks guys for your replies....

The error was about ASP .Net version (64 bit) which was preventing Visual Studio 2005 to be installed and ofof courses usual error wasn't descriptive.

For reffrefferenceothers may face same issue Visual Studio 2005 needs 32bit version of ASP .Net so you need to change the version from 64bit to 32bit,

to do that run the following script:

cscript %SYSTEMDRIVE%\inetpub\adminscripts\adsutil.vbs SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 1
