How’s this for a dodgy install. I am looking at installing the Microsoft Deployment toolkit and the Windows Server 2008 (and Vista SP1) AIK on a test server to see if it is useful here at work. So far i found the following odd things:
- MS Assessment & Planning requires Word & Excel 2007, Word and Excel viewers are no good as substitutes
- It also requires SQL 2005 express, even though i already have SQL 2005 on there.
That is as far as i hae gotten so far… Why you wouldn’t provide an option to use and existing SQL installation is beyond me. I can either download or use a previous download.
Perhaps i should just stick with Ghost…
