Hi,

I'm new here to this wonderful resource. After spending half the day struggling I was finally able to install MSDE SQL Server Desktop Engine in Windows XP Professional. However, it only runs under the adminstrator account, which is used for admin only. The icon shows up on the non admin user account (who has admin privileges), but it shows as unconnected, with no server or services listed, and when I click on an option it gives an file handle error 6 message.

Any help with getting this running for other users on the machine would be greatly appreciated.
