Install issue with CreatePublicationResult file

Everything installs fine except for the CreatePublicationResult.sql file.

When I run it in SQL 2005 (dev edition, not express), I get:

"This edition of SQL Server cannot act as a Publisher or Distributor for replication"

This would be uber-stupid if they didn't allow the dev edition to simulate a publisher/distributor for testing purposes...but any thoughts on this?

Thanks,

Silly me...turns out that you can't do replication if you don't INSTALL replication (which I guess was missed when I initially installed sql 2005)

I expect once this goes through I'll be alright.

Thanks!
