KB #1047: SQL Server 2005 and Windows 8

Last Updated: 3/31/2017

This article is outdated, as our installers now simply download a more recent version of SQL Express instead of bundling SQL 2005. See SQL Server Requirements instead.

KB #1046: SQL Server Requirements

Last Updated: 3/31/2017

Otter, BuildMaster, and ProGet for Windows all require any supported version of Microsoft SQL Server.

KB #1113: Anti-malware False Positives, Code Signing, and Safety of Inedo Products

Last Updated: 8/3/2016

Malware protection is meant to ensure that our systems and sensitive information aren't compromised. Occasionally, this protection doesn't quite work as intended and flags a secure download; this is known as a false positive.

KB #1088: Using PowerShell to Install and Configure ProGet

Last Updated: 5/7/2016

KB #1053: Troubleshooting Installations

Last Updated: 9/3/2015

We try to make installation as simple as possible, and while it usually installs with no issues, once in a while something goes wrong (which is probably why you are here reading this).
