Bypass .Net v3.5 verification when installing SQL Server 2008 Express

By : Bruno

For some reason, when I try to install SQL Server 2008 Express, I get an error saying that I need to have .Net Framework 3.5 installed first, but the thing is: I already have! So could anybody tell me if I can bypass this verification by updating a registry key or something? I have np with visual studio or any other thing... just when I try to install sql express.

Installing Windows Installer 4.5 worked for me. Once installed, the message goes away.

I ran into this once before. Make sure that it is installed. Reinstall if necessary. I believe what I did was install SP1. SQL Server 2008 has a tendency of trying to install the Compact Framework 3.5 and based on the build or refresh of SQL, Compact Framework 3.5 SP1. HTH!

This is one of those it depends questions. If its your code and you work on a small team I would use any naming convention that makes sense to you. I have seen however in large code bases namespaces allow ways for downstream developers to discover functionality without the need of documentation or training. we use the model. standardizing the namespaces made it easier for developers to move team to team.
