Hi Steve, I looked through my SQL2K5 software and found no setup executables with x64. I did find a few filenames with x64 on them like: sqlncli_x64.msi and SqlWriter_x64.msi and SqlServer2005_BC_x64.msi
Has no one installed SQL2K5 64-bit and knows how?
Pardon for resurrecting an old post, maybe it would be better to start a new thread, but anyway...
Based on my same observation that the CD's I have contain x64 versions of some of the executables, I assumed the Install would do some kind of OS detection. However in practice after the install is complete, I find I'm running an "Intel x86" version of SQL on my 64-bit Windows server
For now I'm just turning on AWE and moving on, but is the correct answer "You need to get the x64 CD's from Microsoft"? (or download the x64 zip).
