New Installer SQL Detect Issue

Jun 9, 2009 at 10:57 PM

I have everything install from IIS, VS, & SQL. But the installer is still having problems. I suspect its a port issue. The error I get below is a instance issue. But I DO have a SQL instance running because I have other DBs running on the same box.

What am I doing wrong?

From the CMD prompt.

Did you do this? Failing that, you should make sure that your user has sysadmin rights on the SQL instance you are planning to use, and that the instance has TCP/IP protocol enabled.

I've seen exactly the same problem with the official 92 build. In my case, downloading the sources and compiling Installer.exe again solved the problem. BTW -- It would be nice if the download package included the PDBs; would have helped me resolve the issue sooner without going the build-it-yourself route.

I have reworked SQL detection logic in the latest release - hopefully, it will solve this whole class of issues.
