VS 2008 & SQL Server 2008 compatibility

Q: VS 2008 & SQL Server 2008 compatibility

While I'm still stabilising the overclock on my PC, can I ask if anyone has installed Visual Studio 2008 & SQL Server 2008 on Windows 7 x64 7600? If you do get any hiccups during install but manage to install it, does it run alright? Any problems? I'm interested in C# and ASP.NET development only. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: VS 2008 & SQL Server 2008 compatibility

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: VS 2008 & SQL Server 2008 compatibility

Get the service packs. They run just fine.

In the DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGS) there is a test for event tracing (#V31026). 
The STIG indicates that if you are running Win 2008 the absence of etwenable = false is not a 'finding' because event tracing is enabled by default (on 2008 servers) and it should be enabled and running.
Is this the same for windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server?
I cannot find the element etwenable in my 2008 R2 Enterprise server test system, it does not exist.
Does that mean the requirement for the STIG is met, and event tracing IS enabled by default on Win 2008 R2 Enterprise Servers?  No further action is required to enable? 

Is there an easy way to verify it actually is enabled?  Check registry value, run script?

Excerpt from the STIG:
Microsoft Dot Net Framework 4.0 STIG
Rule Title:  Event tracing for Windows (ETW) for Common Language Runtime events must be enabled.
STIG ID: APPNET0067  Rule ID: SV-41075r1_rule 
Vuln ID: V-31026
Severity: CAT II Class: Unclass
Beginning with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, ETW Tracing is enabled by default and the "etwEnable" setting is not required in order for Event Tracing to be enabled. 
An etwEnable setting of "true" IS required in earlier versions of Windows as ETW is disabled by default.

How can I find out if my hardware can support booting Server 2008 from a dynamic GPT disk?

I wasn't sure so I thought I would give it a try and see what happened, but setup won't let me pick a destination drive. I get an error that says Server 2008 can't be installed on a GPT drive. Does setup give this error right away like this if the hardware isn't compatible? I thought I wouldn't run into an error until later in the setup.

I have only booted from basic MBR disks on this system. Does this mean that it isn't compatible? I mean, if the system supports efi and booting from GPT disks, would I have always been required to boot from a GPT disk?

I may not have setup up the GPT disk correctly. I used diskpart to clean it (clean all). Then I converted it to dynamic, and then converted to GPT. I created a new simple volume and used the retain command on it. When I listed the partitions on the disk, it appeared to have the esp and msr (128 mb) partitions already setup, which I think diskpart is suppsed to do automatically.

What I'm not sure about is if I'm getting the error right away because the GPT disk wasn't setup correctly, or if my hardware isn't efi compatible.

If your bios does not support EFI booting, then you are out of luck no matter what.

Then even if it does support EFI, there are other factors involved

I have tried to stop this spyware xp2008 with no sucess. It has stopped me from doing anything on my computer. I have Spywear Doctor that took me 10 hours to run. It found 6 trojans and delted them but now I still get a sign saying that I have MalwareProtector 2008. A website told me to download mbam-setup. There is no way for me to get into "my computer" from "start". I did download it but now I can't open it to run it. When I click on my "start" button now, all programs are missing.

When I turn off the computer and power it on again, this is the message - RUNDLL Error loading C:\WINDOWS\system32\oljqvcfu.dll. Next line says The specified module could not be found.

I have a Access 2000 database residing on one sever and an installation of SQL Server 2008 residing on another. Both servers are running Windows Server 2003. I created a linked server using the code below. When I run EXEC sp_tables_ex 'PropCont' I get the following,

I installed my Football Manager 2008 game last night. Its installed and it opens, but when I run the software, Vista shuts down Aero and goes to a Basic setting. So all I get is a white screen.

We had:

1) 1 Windows Server 2003 running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 workstations.

We now want to have:

1) 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

Hi guys,
What free Antivirus software for servers?
What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea?
My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet..  He uses 2 laptops at the most  to access files on the server.
However at some points he will update Windows Server 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet., and obviously leave himself open to malware etc. for a short time.
The cost of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for 10 workstations upwards, and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down.
I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution.
Also, if he got Malware on it (e.g. Rootkit or Delta) would current Bleeping Computer tools (e.g. Rkill, RogueKiller etc) still work on the server - or does it require another approach? 
I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open.
Thanks in advance guys

A:Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008

The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.

When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Hey guys,

I have a scenario assignment i have to do. One part is driving me crazy as what I'm doing is not working..

Basically I have two server 2008's running. One the domain controller, the other a file server. They are both connected to each other through the domain 'augusta.globalgoods.local'. I have created the users and global groups i need to in the active directory and placed them in the appropriate places.

I have to create a shared network drive hosted on both of the computers. In order to get the permissions right, I have to create the domain local groups. This is where I get confused. The possibilities of the domain local groups are:
-globalgoodsusers - Read
-globalgoodsmanagers- Read
-globalgoodsmanagers - Full control
-Administrators - Full control

I am currently logged on as administrator and cannot create anything in the folders. the structure i have is USER>GLOBAL GROUP>DOMAIN LOCAL GROUP. Is this right?

Can someone walk me through how to properly install shared network drive with the appropriate permissions for the right user accounts?

Thanks, and sorry for the long post!

Set up a server for my home network, server + laptop + desktop, using Windows Server 2008 R2. I am experimenting with an FTP site, my 1st try at any of this.

Set up the FTP site OK. When entering the site address into a browser address bar, am promted for a User Name and Password for logon.

Does anyone know where, or how, I set up the User Name and Password?

A:Server 2008 R2 and FTP

You set them up as local users on the box. Or, if you are running a domain, you set up their accounts in active directory users and computers.

Technically, you need a CAL (client access license) for each user account that you set up...or you need the Internet connector license if you are going to let the public get to it. Hence the reason that I never use Windows boxes as FTP servers.

Ok you might think Im nuts, but look into the "For Dummies" Books I own a few myself and they are great for giving you ideas and hints on setting things up and remembering things with the way they are worded.
Also since 2008r2 is still so new it might be hard to find info on it. I would look into Server 2003 first then you can grab a book on 2008 since 90% of server stuff is just updated from one to another with added items here and there. Also grabbing the older copy will be a bit cheaper on the wallet then you can go from there about spending the extra cash.

This seems to be a common question on many forums but I have yet to find an adequate solution. In connecting my Seagate NAS 440 to my Server 2008 R2 and joining it to the domain, I am no longer able to access it through the browser by the IP address. If I run the NAS utility it finds no process on the other end of the pipe. If I attempt by NetBios Name it connects just find. The issue is I have some devices on my network (Scanners/Copiers) that don't communicate well with anything but the IP address. I have tried firmware upgrades, DNS Forward/Reverse Lookup, NS2 Authentication Level, reinstallations on both ends and nothing seems to work. Please help with any information.

Hi all, I've recently promoted a Windows Server 2008 DC to primary and assumed all the AD and DNS rolls to it. It's working well and DNS is working on it. I have also forwarded the service providers dns to it.
The setup is that it's the only server handing out internal dns to 4 separate locations with 3 locations on Comcast and one on Windstream T1.
If the location that the server is at goes offline I loose internet access at the other three locations (and always did even with the original server). Work station's are setup with dynamic ip/dns.
We use Linksys RV042 VPN's and my thought is to setup the second dns on them to be Comcasts and in the one location WindStreams. However when I add the entry on the VPN routers I break internal name resolution of the PC's on the network and users have to use IP addresses of our Terminal servers.
What I'd like to do is have the other locations still have internet access even if the internal DNS server is down. Is there a way to do this? The RV042's have dual wan so maybe I could use the Failover with different dns numbers and have it go to the same modem or any other ideas?

Thanks as always in advance for any ideas,

Hi all
Have been a LONG LONG user of Linux as a server (hosting VM's XP / W7 mix) and file / print sharing.

I used to avoid MS like the plague as far as SERVER environments are concerned - probably because my first experince was Windows NT (Windows NeanderThal or Windows No Thanks) which was SO HORRIBLE that it put me off Windows servers for ages.

(Note I'm using a server in a HOME environment where we have around 8 machines (most of which are actually mine for testing -- not a corporate environment which has other considerations).

The problem now with the latest Linux distros that they are trying to be "A Better Windows than Windows". You can of course customize them but I haven't got the time or patience to do this any more. To select what packages to install / leave out now is a 100% pain and if you do it wrong the chances are the system will give errors.

I've looked at the new SUSE 11.2 -- slick and polished - bit I don't NEED "an alternative Windows".

I've just been looking at Windows Server 2008 R2 (got it from Technet) and I'm REALLY IMPRESSED with it so far. I've installed the STANDARD version - you don't need datacenter or Enterprise version for a home server.

It runs vmware server on it just fine (although I might go the whole hog and use the Hyper-V virtualisation -- need to do a bit more research).

I'm quite happy letting MS do the updates than having to mess around with Kernel compiles etc.

Incidentally as a HOME server there ... Read more

I'm trying to decide between Windows Home Server and Windows Server 2008 R2 for my home server PC. Ordinarily it would be a clear cut choice, but I've got a free copy of Server 2008 R2 through my academic MSDN subscription. I'd like to avoid spending extra money if Server 2008 R2 would do the job. But I'm willing to buy Home Server should it prove necesary. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

A:Windows home server vs Server 2008 R2

Server 2008 R2 is a more fully functional product. You will be able to do similar things, but it might be a little more involved getting it set up and working. Plus, if you are interested in IT, you could use the Server 2008 R2 experience....but you won't get hired for your knowledge on Windows Home Server.

My vote is Server 2008 R2 without a doubt.

Hi All,

I was wondering if someone could help me with an issue that I've been struggling with for some time.
The core issue\symptom is being unable to open roles or features in server manager (This is a VPS So cannot boot from CD to repair):


If I try to start the trusted installer I get this error:

I've been trying to follow two guides: Windows Modules Installer Error 126 - Fix
and System Update Readiness Tool - CheckSur.log File Analyzis

I've checked that the registry path is correct (HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\Version):

Which matches the Trusted Installer ID (C:\Windows\WinSxS directory\

(Not sure why theres two folders...?)

Something odd I noticed, the missing components listed in the CheckSUR.txt file have no version numbers, just : ...31bf3856ad364e35_0.0.0.0_none...

The Watchlist components are the things that tie together the Package files with the content - the registry entries are present, but the files aren't.
This creates a problem - as you've found out!
Please upload the full CheckSUR.Persist.log file, and I'll see what I can do about creating a fix - it may take a while!

My main concern was for media server to stream to few devices in the house. I was thinking plex. Does anyone have any other ways I can go about it.


A:Server 2008 for home server... Opinions please.

Not sure what opinions you want. All I can say is that you don't need server 2008 R2 to complete your desired tasks. Any basic Windows client OS should work.

EDIT: It should be noted that Windows Server OS's are enterprise standards therefore a lot of home license applications will not install unless it is open source. You will need to purchase enterprise licenses of software for them to be installed on the server. This is particularly important with Anti-Virus solutions.

I decided to install windows server 2008 onto a virtual machine and play around with it and try to learn.
I've messed around with lots of stuff on it. The two things I would like to get working are FTP and VPN into the server. I've sort of managed to get ftp working. I can access it using the private ip address of, but when I try to access it with my public IP this is where the problem starts. Port forwarding is set correctly on my wireless router, port 21 is being forward to So when I go type ftp://publicipaddress into my web browser it pops up asking for the username and password. This is where I?m stuck. I have no idea what it is, I?ve messed with lots of the settings and whatever I do it still asks for this username and password, even though if I access the ftp server through my LAN using the private IP address it doesn?t ask for a username or password, it's only when using the public ip that it asks. Anyone got any idea's how I set the username and password to something I actually know?

I would like to be able to VPN into the server. I did follow a guide, but it didn?t work when my friend tested. Could someone point me to a nice guide on how to achieve this?
I'm more interested in getting the ftp to work for now.

Thanks all!

A:FTP and VPN into Windows Server 2008

the Virtual server is run under a specific user-id; I think you need that id and password

<ctl><alt>del will get the task manager and the column name User Name is what you need.

scroll to the process controlling the VM

you may need to alter the settings for the VM to force it to run under another
specific user which you can set the pwd
create new account
set new password for it
login to that account to create the %profile% area​then assign the VM to run under that login

When a user opens there user drive, 2 windows open.
What could be causing these problem?

Hi all:

This is my first post here. Hope you can help me!

I have two laptops that I need to network with a switch and then run Windows Server 2008 Enterprise version on both for learning purposes. The laptop details are as follows:

Toshiba Satellite L20, XP Home edition SP2, Intel 1595 MHz processor, 1280 MB total physical memory, 856 MB available physical memory.

HP 520 Notebook PC, Vista Business, Intel Core Duo T2300 @ 1667 Mhz, 1014 MB total physical memory, 299 MB available physical memory.

I request your advise on the following:
1. Are these specs adequate to run and test Win Server 2008? I do not need everything to be superfast but I should be able to install and run server 2008 on both systems.
2. Would it be better if I used Virtual PC on both systems to run Server 2008?
3. As an alternative, can I use ONE of these systems, Virtual PC, and then configure multiple systems (three) each running Server 2008? If my current specs are insufficient, what is required to run this particular setup? Also, will I be able to do routing between these three (virtual) machines without problems?

I hope my questions are clear and many thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out.

There are lots of differences. One is a client (win7) and 1 is designed to be a server (2008). The server offers various basic network services such as DHCP, DNS, WINS, VPN, Active Directory, Certificate Services, IIS Web Server, FTP Server, etc. Server 2008 is far more expensive to buy licenses for.

We have MS Server 2008 R2.
We have printers that staff can print to that have locked security via security tab in Windows for that particular printer.

We also have a wireless network for public users.
Public users who have Mac laptops can connect to these printers instantly.
I just tested a Windows 7 machine - and they can add the printer that is locked down as well.

Does anyone know how to prevent the public from adding staff printers?


A:MS Server 2008 R2 and printers

Mike Green, welcome to the windows 7 forum.

the best way is to put your wireless users on a separate network ip range. Also set the security on the printers to AD users only. The public users might be able to see the printer by IP if they are on the same subnet but if the security is set to only AD users allowed, then they could not print or do anything to your network printers.

What "locked security" settings are set?

I need to connect workstations running XP to a network, heard (overheard?) XP and server 2008 are not compatible. Is this true? Do I need to stick w/ server 2003? Are there programs to overcome this alleged obstacle? Thanks to anyone with knowledgeable input.

A:XP and Server 2008 compatible?

I am studying Win2003 Server and much of what I've learned will apply.

If you set your Win2008 Server as a Domain Server, using the default Forest Level, it will support NT thru XP.

Now if your talking about Managed Desktops (managed from the Domain Server; updates, configuration, etc.), that is another can-of-worms.

For small organizations, Managed Desktops is not a good idea. Let each user set the Windows configuration to their liking and/or company policy. Win Updates should be set to Notification ONLY, so they do not interfere with on-going work. They download/install whenever they are not doing anything.
