Microsoft download page says .Net framework 2.0 or later another page says .net 3.5. Which one is right?
I try to install in a pure XP machine. I got the alert from SQL Server Setup saying that
SQL Server Setup cannot continue until the following programs are installed. After installing
the programs, restart the computer if required, and the restart SQL Server Setup.
Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 SP2 is available at: http:://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=159826
Microsoft Windows Installer 4.5 is available at: http:://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=159623
I installed .Net framework 2.0 SP2 and WI 4.5 then SQL Server installed (Database engine only) successfully without any issue.

SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition requires .NET Framework 2.0, but all other editions require >NET Framework 3.5 SP1.
Windows Installer 4.5 is required also.
Hope this helps.
