Install the SQL following SQL 2008 SQL Management Objects in the following order.

More Information

The SQL 2005 SQL Management Objects were required in versions of Forecaster 7.0 earlier than Service Pack 5. This applies regardless of the version of SQL that hosts the Microsoft Forecaster database. You can have both the SQL 2005 and SQL 2008 SQL Management Objects installed at the same time.
