Great release. Major aesthetic improvements over v1.2.3

We did a clean install on our 2008 R2 server, and then successfully imported surveys.
When I went into the UI and selected Designer > Layout and was returned an error that access was denied to ~\Survey2.0\NSurveyAdmin\CSS\UserCSS\1

When I navigated to that location on the server I saw that the folder (1) did not exist, so I created it and was then able to access the Layout page.

Just FYI for future releases.

Awesome application. This open source app saved us 30k/year and has much better functionality than what we previously had...and I didn't have to write it! THANKS A TON!!!!

We really want to use this release. We have ASP Net 4.0 but, only SQL Server 2005.

What specific features of SP 2.0 require 2008 R2?

If we try to implement using SQL 2005, will we fail for sure or might it work after all?

I'm willing to skip 2008 R2 features/functionality.

This has not been properly tested and is certainly not "officially"advised, but based on a quick try in the past it's possible to install SP 2.0 with a 2005 Database.

Try running the script to find what errors are generated. Some can be fixed (data length issues as far as I can remember).
Some errors are 2008 related, they had to do with the use of the Scalar-valued Functions. You can work around/ ignore these errors.

The effect will be that certain features of SP 2.0 will not work (check the sourcecode to find where the functions are used). The main features will be ok.
