SQL Server 2008 R2 Nov CTP Installs Easily on Windows 7

I had problems installing on Windows XP SP3 but it was very easy on Windows 7 Ultimate Evaluation copy

I had problems installing on Windows XP SP3 but it was very easy on Windows 7 Ultimate Evaluation copy (build 7100). If you have Visual Studio 2008 you may need to apply SP1 before you complete installation on Windows 7.

I installed a named instance Hodentek\KUMORI (ver 10.50.1352) which is a minor upgrade to SQL Server 2008 RTM. If you want to work with a database in the cloud
(SQL Azure) you need SQL Server 2008 R2 Nov-CTP.

SSMS treates Cloud based database like a second cousin by not offering the full
support like it does for the on the premises database. Well, well the SQL Azure looks like it is still 10.25. Is it becasuse I used the October CTP?

Notice the missing green color. For the ground based databases it provides the
full GUI but for the Cloud based database you get mostly script support that means
sharpen up your TSQL scripting skills.
