JSI Tip 7879. When you attempt to install Microsoft SQL Server 2000 on a Windows Server 2003 Web Edition computer, you receive 'Windows cannot open this program since it has been disabled'?

Windows Server 2003 Web Edition is designed to build and host Web-based applications and Web services. It does NOT support enterprise applications. If you must install and run enterprise applications, install Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.
