Is it possible to install MS sql 2005 on Windows 7?
I'm having a problem installing a SQL Server 2005 on my Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit.
The installation never completes. The error log file states I need to have IIS installed (I do and it is running). I did restart my pc after installing IIS.
I get a message stating that SP3 needs to be run after the install for compatibility issues, if the install never runs not sure how I can add it. I ran the SP3 anyway and it did not help. I do have .NET framework installed.

For system requirements, see Hardware and Software Requirements, in the readme file or in SQL Server Books Online. LTDEL9C9H5R1 : Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is either not installed or is disabled. IIS is required by some SQL Server features. Without IIS, some SQL Server features will not be available for installation. To install all SQL Server features, install IIS from Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel or enable the IIS service through the Control Panel if it is already installed, and then run SQL Server Setup again. For a list of features that depend on IIS, see Features Supported by Editions of SQL Server in Books Online. LTDEL9C9H5R1 : To change an existing instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 to a different edition of SQL Server 2005, you must run SQL Server 2005 Setup from the command prompt and include the SKUUPGRADE=1 parameter.
