Sequence install SQL Server and VS (Visual Studio)


You should install SQL 2008 Developer first, this will rule out the need for VS installing SQL which comes with it. Or you could do like others suggested and choose custom VS installation.
My favorite way is this:
  1. SQL 2008 Developer
  2. Visual Studio Professional 2008
  3. Run Windows Updates
  4. Install Resharper 🙂
  5. Install RedGate SQL ToolBelt
But it seems that to get some features to work the proper order is:
  1. Visual Studio Professional 2008 (with SQL Unchecked)
  2. SQL 2008 Developer
  3. Run Windows Updates
  4. Install Resharper/Redgate Tools
Resharper and Redgate in my opinion are far the best tools for developing in C#/SQL.
