Unanswered: Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) Release A
My objective is to use Enterprise Manager to move (copy) my SQL db from the server to my windows desktop computer.
I downloaded MSDE and am having trouble installing it, no doubt because I do not understand the documentaion (ReadMeMSDE2000A.htm).
When I try to run setup, I get that message that says:
"A strong SA password is required for security reasons. Please use SAPWD switch to supply the same."
Considering my purpose, do I need a "strong" SA password? If not, how do I get around it? If yes, how do I set it up?
I am a Mac user so I have poor windows skills, please make it as painless as possible for me, thanks!
Create 2 file in the same director with setup.exe
setup.exe /settings Settings.ini /L*v C:/MSDELog.log
Run the setup.bat
Still doesn't work
I have tried your code and other code like that and in each case it fails. I keep getting this error message that says:
"The instance name specified is not valid."
Note that your code didn't even use the instance name.
In your code you use:
Actually on my C drive the folder is called MSDERela. I tried changing your code to indicate that and it still doesn't work. Same error message.
Any other suggestions? Thanks!
Got it to install but.....
I added the INSTANCENAME and added quote marks to some of the code and it seems to have worked. It produced a folder on my C drive wtih a number of files in it.
Now can someone tell me how to launch MSDE?
Now you know why I call myself SQL_Dummy!
