SQL server 2008 r2 won't install. I'm trying to get the management tools alone, but the software will no initialize. I have the required windows installer installed. Plus, the necessary .net 3.5 sp1 installs when i try to install the server, but that's it. I am installing the tools on Win xp sp3. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jason

Is this the Standard Edition of SQL Server? That's the only version supported on XP. Do you get any error messages?
