Using SQL Server Developer Edition

Discussion in 'Tablet PC' started by awillms, Sep 2, 2005.

    Has anyone here tried to install SQL Server Developer Edition on Windows XP
    Tablet PC Edition? I am getting ready to purchase a new machine and would
    like it to be a Tablet. However, I have heard rumors that SQL Server
    Developer Edition will not install on the Tablet PC Edition of Windows XP. I
    have been using SQL Server Developer Edition on Windows XP Professional for
    years with great success.

    Thanks for any help anyone can give!

  2. Tony,

    I'm running SQL 2000 Developer on one tablet and Yukon Developer on another
    with no problems. I think I did have to install IIS (or maybe that was for
    something else), which is not installed by default on TabletPC, but it is on
    your Windows CD.

    IIS can be installed through Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs/Add-Remove
    Windows Components with the Internet Information Services (IIS) listing.
    The install should be automatic without inserting a CD/DVD.

    Thanks!! I have been trying to find an answer to this for about two weeks
    (off and on). You have been a great help. I didn't want to drop 3k on a
    tablet only to find out that it wouldn't let me get my work done.

    Thanks again!

  5. Thanks, Chris. It's been a while since I did it, and obviously it was so
    easy to do that it wasn't memorable. ;-)

    :cool: I had to peek to see if it was actually there before I said anything.
    Then it all came back. You're right, it is easy, but just isn't installed
    by default.
