I want to install sql server 2008R2 express edition and visual studio 2010 on windows 2007. There are some questions related to SQL server 2008R2 installation in my mind.

1) Shall i install visual studio 2010 first and then sql server 2008R2 or vice versa? Coz I hv read that sql server 2008 R2 requires .Net Framework 3.5 or more.
2) Which service pack i hv to install?
3) Which version of windows installer shall i install?

I had this issue as well, so my final working installation process was:

SQL server first,
then Visual Studio (without sql component)

and .Net if necessary(this is available to install seperately via Windows Update or hotfix.)
