  • I think you got it wrong. Isn't the right question "Which version of Windows Vista is compatible with SQL 2005?"

  • I'm lost, I chose SQL Server 2005 SP2, but it tells me it's wrong, and the correct answer is SQL Server 2005 RTM. But the explanation and the links all said SP2, not RTM

    Correct answer: SQL Server 2005 RTM

    Explanation: SQL Server Service Pack 2 or greater is needed to be fully compatible with Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007.

  • I am totally confused.

    The explanation for the answer says that SQL Server 2005 SP2 or greater is required to be fully compatible with vista and office.

    But the correct answer seems to be SQL Server 2005 RTM.

    Can anybody detail more on this?:D

  • I think SQL Server SP2 is the right answer.

  • ?? Correct answer: SQL Server 2005 RTM

    Explanation: SQL Server Service Pack 2 or greater is needed to be fully compatible with Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007.

    I chose SP 2 as well in the mistaken belief Microsoft are right.

  • Glad I'm not the only one who doesn't understad it???

  • Weird.

    Explanation: SQL Server Service Pack 2 or greater is needed to be fully compatible with Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007.

    Doh! Pass the six pack.

  • Correct answer: SQL Server 2005 RTM

    Explanation: SQL Server Service Pack 2 or greater is needed to be fully compatible with Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007.

    This makes no sense. Please can the questioners take more care before submitting questions, as there seem to have been a few debatable answers lately. Whilst its good to get the forum busy to increase knowledge, it doesn't help to confuse people.

  • As I see it, what most people are answering, and what the explanation says is correct, are the same, but that a mistake has been made in the configuration of the QOTD app (so that an incorrect answer is the one flagged as the right one).

    Now we've highlighted this, can I PLEASE request that we don't do the same as with the "Order By" question and submit 11 pages of "I answered this and it seems to be right, but I've been told it's wrong so can I have my point back please".

  • SP2 or higher is the corect answer (just try to use datamining functionallity in Excel without SP2 or higher it will fail)

    So or the question is wrong but the anwer to this question is sp2 or higher for sure

  • I live this forum but QoD makes me crazy too often...:crazy:

  • Confusing,

    i checked the Windows Vista Compatibility List and found:

    Microsoft SQL Server 2005 x64 & x86 (needs SQL Server 2005 SP2 installed to run best in Vista). Note: SP2 has not been released yet, it's only beta and Microsoft recommends not to install it in production machines. The major issue with SQL 2005 is that it doesn't inherit credentials from Windows, as a result, any application attempting to access the db engine will have to run as administrator or the Authenticated users group will have to manually be added to to the SQL logins. Manager Studio requires administrator's privileges or to manually add user accounts to sysadmin group.

    SP2 should be the correct answer i think.

  • If the explanation is correct, the answer is incorrect.
