I am trying to install SQL server 2008 but it shows the below error. I download .Net Framework 2.0 from the Internet and then installed it in my system; then I again tried to install this software but SQL shows the same error again. Can any one tell me its solution, so that I can install this software and can start my work?

SQL Server 2008 Setup requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 to be installed.

Download and install .NET Framework from http://www.microsoft.com/net/ and then rerun setup.

OK
