    Unanswered: SQL Server install fails

    I have tried installing SQL server versions 7 and 10 on windows 2k server but always get an error message about string too long(Ex. c:\programfiles\winpak2\microsoft\sequel server) with v.7 and "string over 32bits" with v.10. What am I missing?

    This is from my tech in the field I think he meant SQL Server 2000 instead of version ten.


    Yesterday when i tried to load Sequel server from the WinPak2 disk it staed that the file string was to long. Ex. c:\programfiles\winpak2\microsoft\sequel server. There is no provision to shorten file stingin program.(error83). We tried a fullversion of sequel7.0.This is on a server running 2000server platform.It would not load either,same problem. Then we tried version 10 sequel and it stated the same thing But this time it said the file string was over 32 bits. So we could shorten this in loading it ex.C\sequel server.It started to load andit wrote itto the full string.c:\programfiles\microsoft\sequel\sql Is there a 32bitlimiton installation of sequel program..Gary

    Winpak is software for card access systems made by Northern Computers(see nciaccessworld.com). Winpak requires SQL server to run and it is included on the Winpak media.

    Really?

    Don't they have a tech support number?

    Cool, I went to their tech support site and it came up as a blank window

    http://nciaccessworld.com/technical/index.htm

    For more information about WIN-PAK PRO, please call Northern Computers, Inc. at (800) 323-4576 or fax (414) 769-5989.

    Its says It comes with Access, or SQL 7.0, which is optional...

    I don't know what it costs, but I wonder how they get around the issue of licensing...

    Northern does not support microsoft products, Northern can barely support their own products.

    Great company...how'dya get stuck with them...and how much did it cost?

    From THEIR FAQ page

    Question:
    Can WIN-PAK 2.0 use SQL for its Database Engine?
    Answer:
    WIN-PAK 2.0 Releases 1 and 2 cannot use SQL as its database engine. It can only use Microsoft Access. WIN-PAK 2.0 Release 3 uses MSDE as the database engine which is a scaled down desktop version of MSSQL. You however do not have the tools that MSSQL provides.

    Good Luck!

    Winpak uses SQL server services only for making backups of its database and not as a database engine. The size of this particular company's user database(consisting of people who hold photo ID cards that allow them into doors, etc.) makes automated backups necessary. They don't get around any licensing, the licenses have to be purchased just like anyone else. The simplest of these access systems start around $7,000 and goes well into the $100,000s.
