Tried to install the CTP and got a message stating that 2008 won't coexist with 2000. I had an instance of 2000 Developer Edition on here that I was testing some stuff with. I removed that, rebooted, and I still get the same message. Am I to assume that you can't even install 2008 if you've got the 2000 client tools installed, or am I missing something else

Have a look at section 2.1.1 of the readme file, it states "To work around this issue, manually remove the registry key at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\80, and then re-run SQL Server "Katmai" June CTP Setup." Note that this will likely break the 2000 tools so uninstall them first or better yet use VPC/VMWare to create an isolated environment. CTP's often don't play well with other versions and can be difficult to uninstall cleanly.

Ah ha, the actual CTP ISO has an outdated readme that doesn't mention that part. I bet that'll do the trick. Thanks.

Hi,

I also got the same warning message about side by side running of SQL2k and Katmai June CTP. But I could not find any note about SQL 2000 in the readme documents of the installation.

Yeah, the readme file that's included with the installation is slightly out of date. I think this is the one you need: http://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx DownloadID=6834
