    Hi michael,

    can you show us the connection string or just attach your web.config to this thread. Also, what SQL Server do you have installed on your machine?

    Thanks for getting in touch with us. We'll sort this out in no time :)

    Thanks, I don't have a version of SQL sever installed on this machine.  I just downloaded the installation and tried to run it.  After getting the Vista settings corrected I ran it and it now fails with the SQL server error.  I assumed it downloaded the express version.  Do I need to install the express version or a different one.  I can install SQL 2005 on the machince but perfer not to.  I did not change any of the scripts and tried using admin and admin as the user and password.  I set them up in Vista also because I turned Windows Authenification on.  I did not see any other instructions in the install docs but may have missed it.  

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi michael,

    As per our system requirements, you need to have either of the following database platforms:

    Microsoft® SQL Server 2000
    Microsoft® SQL Server 2005
    Microsoft® SQL Express
    MySQL
    Oracle 10+

    The error you get suggests that remote connections are currently not allowed for SQL Server. Please have a look at this article How to configure SQL Server 2005 to allow remote connections.

    Let us know if you need anyt further assistance.

    Sincerely yours,

    Rebecca
