The MOF compiler could not connect with the WMI server. Installing SQL 2008 on a Windows 7 Pro machine. RRS feed

  • Question

  • The MOF compiler could not connect with the WMI server. This is either because of a semantic error such as an incompatibility with the existing WMI repository or an actual error such as the failure of the WMI server to start.

    I am trying to install sql 2008 on a windows 7 Pro machine.

    When ever I try to install the program, I receive the error listed above.

    Has anyone found a work around for getting sql 2008 to run a windows 7 machine?
