Installing sql server 2008 in windows 8 pr 64-bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed .net framework 3.5 as required by the program online as shown in the options, but after the installation of .net 3.5(2.0 and 3.0 also). It displays that installation of framework has failed. But when i checked on control panel -> program and features -> turn windows features on or off; i found the framework was installed properly, so as a test purpose I installed the windows dvd to usb making tool(i don't remember the exact name), it was installed and worked fine(this program requires .net framework, i checked before installing the framework). But the same setup package of sql server 2008 was installed and worked fine in windows 7 64-bit. So how to install in Windows 8 64-bit ? It also worked well in windows 8 32-bit pro as following the displayed options(such as first of all, installing .net framework online). 
    Thanks in advance.
