SQL 6.5 Workstation Installation Problem on NT 4.0 Workstation

Post by John Petru » Sun, 26 Jan 1997 04:00:00


NT Workstation 4.0     with no Service Pack applied.
SQL 6.5 Workstation   with no Service Pack applied.

MS loopback installed.
No network card.
Use dynamic IP via ras to ISP.


After installing SQL on the E: drive,
Enterprise Manager does not see the (local) server and
cannot connect to it.


I installed SQL on the C: drive instead of the E: drive.
It works just fine. How aggrevating!
Apparently, SQL Workstation  will only install properly
on the C: drive.
I will report bug to MS.


1. problems with installation of SQL Workstation 6.0 on NT Workstation 4.0

I'm trying to install SQL Workstation 6.0 on
my home pc which is running NT Workstation 4.0
(dual booting with Windows 95). The set-up goes
smoothly untill the message "Trying to start
SQL Server...", then an error message returns
saying that it can not connect to SQL Server, and I
have to exit set-up program. I can start the MSSQL
services from control manager manually, but since the
installation is not complete, none of the utility
program (SQLEM, etc.) works. The network protocol is
named pipe (default).

Any suggestion is appreciated.
