Hello: I have been trying to download and install either SQL Server Express 2012 or Sql Server Management Studio 2012 so I can access my remote SQL Server 2012 tables in my Dot Net Nuke website. I am using Windows 7 OS, X86. I have installed and verified that ALL of the following versions of the Dot Net Framework are
installed and verified:
DNN Framework 2.0
DNN Framework 3.5
DNN Framework 4.0
DNN Framework 4.5
DNN Framework 4.5.1
DNN Framework 4.5.2
Each and every time I attempt to install either SQL Server Express 2012 or Sql Server Management Studio 2012 I get an error message that
"You must install either DNN Framework 2.0 or DNN Framework 4.0 to install SQL Server Express 2012"
I have done this many times, I have installed and uninstalled all of these, trying different orders and different sequences starting with 2.0 by itself, then adding the others. Same error. I have looked online and I can see that many others have had similar problems, sometimes a registry hack was suggested. However, I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion that works.
