Error when installing SQL 2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2 (64 bit)

I’m installing SQL Server 2008 on a Server 2008 machine and I got the following error:

“You must user the Role Management Tool to install or configure Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1”.  To fix this issue go to Sever Manager –> Features –> Add Feature and enable the .NET Framework 3.5.  If you try to install it yourself it will fail.

    Another approach which works well is to have the XML tag reference a custom TFS group. In my case there is a master contributor group shared between projects so rather than list all the contributor users in the template AssignedTo list boxes I created a TFS group called ‘TeamAssignments’ and within security I referenced the team. Then in the templates I added the tag ListItem value=[project]\TeamAssignments. Now when anyone is added to the team they are displayed in the AssignedTo List box. This also means that another team can be created without changing the templates as the changes can be done in security.

    TFS Team Name: Blue (example set up in security)
    TFS Group Name: TeamAssignments
    Members: Team Blue
