I am just starting to learn asp.net and sql. i am thinking if this would work on XP. isn't it vista better than XP for these installs?

To me... the only diference is that in XP you have IIS 5.5 and in Vista you have IIS 7.
Taking that out.... it's all the same!

Installation wise Vista is probably better.
If you are "a beginner", xp might be better a environment since there is a lot of support available.

i tried installing VWD and SQL on vista home premium, VWD works fine but SQL did not install, it was like just right after the installation wizard, there was nothing, no "installation success" message, or "error" message, nothing, its was like i never installed
it. i tried looking it in control panel, theres no SQL of such.
im now considering reformating my laptop from vista home to XP Pro. i dont want to be hasty, then later on more issues will arise. i read a lot about reformating or downgrading vista to XP but there are some driver issues and incompatibility, etc.
or mights as well i will just try ubuntu or bsd, that might be a little better than vista home. ( though im not really sure if that supports asp.net ).

SQL installation shares few components with Office 2003/2007. Try removing component call "Web Components" via Add/Remove Program wizard under Control Panel. Then re-install SQL Server.
"Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components"

press start end type sql. There must be something.
In vista, you must install sql sp2 to sql functions properly
