Chef and Vista

As I mentioned last night, I made the 1.0.0 build of Chef and started doing some installation testing on Vista.

It’s official – Vista’s UAC is kicking my ass.   It’s during the database setup that I’m having the problem.  Sql Server gets installed OK, it’s for some reason the database restore that times out.

Kinda tired of running the sql express install at this point.

    Ok, that timeout appears to have been a fluke – maybe related to the fact that I had installed and uninstalled sqlexpress a dozen times (seriously, 12 or so) without rebooting.

    I’m not calling the install process 100% working, but I’ve run it a couple times now without problems on my machine. I’ll need to do it a few more times on several other Vista boxen before I’m satisfied.

    I’m going to bed.
