I have a problem installing SQL Server 2005 on my Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit operating system.

The installation never completes. The error log file states I need to have IIS installed (I do and it is running). I did restart my pc after installing IIS.

I get a message stating that SP3 needs to be run after the install for compatibility issues, if the install never runs not sure how I can add it. I ran the SP3 anyway. Did not help. I do have MS .NET framework installed.

Appreciate any help.
