SQL Server 7 client file installation

SQL Server 7 client file installation

Post by Jeff Davi » Fri, 02 Jul 1999 04:00:00

What is the best way to install SQL Server 7 client files?

Ideally I would like to install them automatically from another install
program I built. I don't need to install Enterprise Manager or the other
utilities, just the bare essentials. As long as you can connect to the
database and run queries, I'm happy.

I had a list of files that needed to be installed for SQL Server 6.5
clients, but I think SQL Server 7 may require ADO / other stuff.

Ideally Microsoft would have an MSI file or MSI merge module for installing
these files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. Installation SQL server 2000: previous installation - files pending

Check if there is a file called wininit.ini in your windows root e.g. c:\windows or c:\winnt

If so rename or delete this file.

This file is checked on windows startup to process any system updates that cannot take place until
reboot. Something must have got bogged down in it.

SQL Setup may be detecting this file and assumes some other prog must be being installed and waiting
to update system files.
