Hi @Vipin_Chaliya --

 

I would recommend reviewing the two links below that detail the supported operating systems for SQL Server 2017.  The first link details supported Windows operating systems and the second link details Linux operating systems.  I hope this helps.  Take care.

 

Supported Windows operating systems

Supported Linux operating systems

@Vipin_Chaliya What version of Windows are you running on? SQL Server is compatible with Windows 10. It's also compatible with Windows 8, but not 7.

 

You can still download the media but not actually run the installation. My suggestion would be to locate the folder with the installation media, and run the setup file in compatibility mode. Select Windows 8 and try running the install again.
