I need to install SQL Server 2008 R2 onto a development machine we recently got that has Windows 8.1 Pro on it. SQL Server 2008 requires the .Net framework 3.0/3.5 be installed prior to installing the server. I know that Windows 8.1 ships with .Net framework 4.0/4.5 already installed, but the SQL Server won't install without version 3.0 and/or 3.5.

Is there any potential problems with installing this older version of the Net framework with 4.0/4.5 already present?

Considering the games I install routinely install older versions of .NET and everything is still hunky-dory, I don't see any issues.

Thanks for the info. I actually found that you can add it using the Add/Remove Windows Features in the control panel in Windows 8. It then downloads the needed files and installs it without a problem. I just have to see if my software plays nice with Windows 8 now....
