While rolling out Windows 8.1 here at Micromail, we have been testing that the various tools we use will work. One such tool is the Microsoft eAgreements software that partners must use for contract work. The good news is that it does work, however the installation is not seamless. Here’s how we did it.
Step 1: eAgreement Signup (not really part of the installation but certainly a pre-req)
After being approved, register with your Microsoft account (Windows Live ID) or Partner Domain account. Public Customer Number (PCN) and business email address required.
Step 2: Download and install SQL Server Compact 3.5
You will have to install both 32 and 64 bit if you are running a 64 bit OS.
Step 3: Enable .Net Framework 3.5
Accessed from Control Panel->Programs->Programs and Features->Turn Windows Features on or off
Step 4 : You can now install the eAgreements software
NB: You must be an administrator for all of the above.
