I am trying to do a silent install of SQL Server 2000 but before it runs, Vista pops up a message saying this program has known compatibility issues.

Is there any way to hide or block this message?

Let me get this right....you want to operate databases on an OS using a piece of software which the vendor tells you will not work properly if you do? And why would anyone want to install a server-based service on a workstation OS?

Use MSDE/SQL Server Express/Desktop Edition/whatever-MS-is-calling-it-this-week on Vista.

Try adding the following dword key prior to installation - I've used this recently on Win 2k3...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\{ff25f0b5-c894-45f4-a29d-1bdd0c7926cd}=1
