Prerequisites for installing SQL Server 2012 RC0

If you are interested in installing SQL Server 2010 RC0, there are a few prerequisites for installing it that may not be readily obvious at first:

  1. In order to install SQL Server 2012 RC0, you will need to install this on either Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
  2. If you have an existing installation of Visual Studio 2010 on your machine, you will need to apply Visual Studio 2010 SP1 before being able to proceed with the installation of SQL Server 2012 RC0
Therefore, if your current development environment is not running the latest service packs, unfortunately, you will have to apply these before giving SQL Server 2012 RC0 a whirl!
