Default Configuring SQL Server 2005??

Hi all,

Iv started studying the 'Beginning ASP.NET 3.5' book and have been successful in the installation of WVD & SQL Server 2008? The book indicates that Appendix B provides the configuration details for SQL Server 2005 but not 2008, should I have 2008 or do I need to install 2005?

Thanks

Kyle

SQL Server 2008 isn't all that different from 2005. And it's clearly more correct to use it with .NET 3.5 projects. I'd leave things alone.

You *might* find that you want a different connection string for 2008 vs. what the book gives you for 2005. But there's a good chance that VWD will supply the correct one for you.

Hi there,

For book related questions, you're better off posting in the book's own forum here: http://p2p.wrox.com/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=386 That way, it's easier for everyone to find relevant messages.

That said, it doesn't really matter. SQL Server 2005 and 2008 have a lot in common. If you're handy with computers, go ahead and install SQL Server 2008. However, if you're really new to this and need a lot of guidance, you're probably better off installing 2005 first, and upgrade later once you get the hang of it.

Hope this helps,

Imar

Hi all,

Yeah but what I am saying is that when I installed WVD I also installed SQL Server 2008 so its there but Im just not sure what to do now, is there any other steps I need to take for the 2008 to work?

Im trying to follow the SQL Server 2005 instructions but they are really puzzling me.

Like I said, if these things are puzzling you, you may be better off installing 2005 as well (they can run side by side).

Alternatively, if you want to keep using 2008, you could post a problem description here (please try to be as concise as possible) and I might be able to help you out.

Cheers,

Imar
