Well this morning I've been trying to mirror the office's development environment onto an offline laptop.

Correct me if I am wrong, but version ".0.30729.1 SP" includes the service pack 1 update (dont get me started on the mission of creating a full version of the installer/downloader to run offline) . So when I try to setup a new SQL Server 2008 instance why do I fail the test "Previous releases of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008"  ...

Most support web sites suggest re-installing  SP1, which I have done to no avail.

AND the icing on the cake is it's Friday, so im risking missing out on a whole weekends development if I don't sort this out before the end of the day!


I did in the end find a solution before the end of the day. If you are interested please read this post containing the solution
