So I just got a new windows 7 laptop, and i'm trying to get it all setup and ready for development. I installed Visual Studio 2010 professional and updated it to service pack 2. However, whenever I attempt to install Sql Server 2008 R2 it fails with the following error:
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup
The following error has occurred:
Another version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 has been detected on this system that must be updated to SP1. Please update all Visual Studio 2008 installations to SP1 level, by visiting Microsoft Update.
I attempted to re-install Sql Server 2008 to no avail. No matter what I cannot stop getting this error. I do not have visual studio 2008 installed on my machine at all, so I am not sure why it is complaining about it.
