  • What error, do you get?

    1) If you don't have Visual Studio 2008 installed and have never installed a SQL Server 2008 CTP build, 
    SQL Server 2008 RTM comes with everything you need and you should not encounter this problem.
    2) If have Visual Studio 2008 installed, you must install VS 2008 SP1 before you install SQL Server 2008 RTM (or don't pick features that require it).
    3) If you do not have VS 2008 installed but are encountering this problem, do not attempt to install VS 2008 SP1. 
    Rather, uninstall Visual Studio 2008 Shell (integrated mode) and Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2.0. 
    You should then be allowed to proceed with the installation.
    4) SQL Server 2008 RTM comes with the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 final release. 
    This requirement is independent of the binaries we need from VS 2008 SP1. 
    There is no need for you to run any update to the .Net Framework after installing SQL Server 2008.
    5) If you install Visual Studio 2008 RTM after installing SQL Server 2008 RTM,
     you must install VS 2008 SP1 to be supported if you are using the features in SQL Server that depend on
     VS 2008 SP1 (BIDS, Integration Services, or Management Tools).

  • HI, 

    Could you please post the exact error message. if so please follow the article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956139

    Rule "Previous releases of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008" failed.  


    A previous release of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 is installed on this computer. Upgrade Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 to the SP1 before installing SQL Server 2008.

    I am assuming you had installed Visual Studio 2008 then you installed Visual Studio 2008 SP1 then floow the below instructions 

    1. Perform one of the following options:

    2. Install Visual Studio 2008 SP1 before you install SQL Server 2008.

    3. Uninstall Visual Studio 2008, and then install SQL Server 2008. After SQL Server 2008 is installed, you can install Visual Studio 2008 and then install Visual Studio 2008 SP1.

    4. Do not install the following components of SQL Server 2008 that require Visual Studio 2008: Management Tools (both Basic or Complete), Integration Services, and Business Intelligence Development Studio features. If you want to later install any of these features, you must first install Visual Studio 2008 SP1.
