So frustrating. I cringe every time I have to reboot now.
I am very tempted to go out and buy an Apple Mac.
UPDATE: Install worked, after four attempts. And this is not a machine with lots installed - and it's clean. There is no toolbars and loads of utilities. It's just plain stock Windows Vista. Lesson learned? Don't use the Sleep or Hibernation thing. Every time I use that something goes wrong. Reboot every day.
UPDATE: I can't believe it... After the install finished I clicked Windows Update. It downloaded 340MB for SQL 2005 SP2, and run for ten minutes. Then it return "Update failed to install". I clicked the link "Get Help" and as expect the error code wasn't there. I clicked the button "Try again" and it started downloading the 340MB SP2 again!
How bad a software can be? It's just the client, for goodness sake, it's not the SQL 2005 Server components. Another reboot coming.
UPDATE: Worst decision ever: installing the SQL 2005 Client on this Windows Vista machine. After installing SP2 I wanted to add another feature, but can't because the code files are newer than the installation DVD. And guess what? Uninstall is not working. What a piece of software.
