Either an ActiveX control not registering on your computer or MDAC not installed on your machine.
If you do not have MSDE or SQL server running on your machine, download Mdac 2.6 and install.
Try to register sqldmo.dll manually by following this procedure:
- Download regsvr32.exe and save it to your "C:\program files\Vale Software\MSDE Manager\binn" directory.
- Go to a command prompt (Start > Run, type
commandand press RETURN). You then need to move to the 'binn' folder in MSDE Manager's installation directory.
CD..(till you get to C:\>)
- Then type:
cd program files
cd vale software
cd msde manager
- Then type:
- Press RETURN
- Exit the command box
- Start MSDE Manager
If this doesn't fix the problem please email firstname.lastname@example.org (please mention your operating system version).
Various. e.g. lack of disk space, corruption in downloaded file or not having administration rights.
Win XP, NT, 2000: Check that you have administration rights on your PC. Check you have ample space on your hard drive. Try downloading the file again. Contact us if the above don't work and we will re-do you another build with a different installation program.
TCP/IP not enabled. If you install later copies of MSDE 2000 then TCP/IP is not enabled by default.
Enable TCP/IP by using the "SVRNETCN" command.
Run SVRNETCN (Start/Run/SVRNETCN).
This pops up a basic dialog which immediately tells you that SQL isn't connected with any protocol.
Click TCP/IP over into the right-hand box, click Apply and then restart your instance/machine.
Do not know what to put to register a local instance.
Either any of:
1) The server name (you can find this by hovering your mouse over the SQL icon in the bottom right of your screen, e.g. for \\ACERPC enter "ACERPC" - Don't include the quotes.)
2) The word "(LOCAL)" - Don't include the quotes.
3) Simply a "." - Don't include the quotes.
