Unanswered: SQL Server 7.0 Beta/Testing ASP Application
I'm trying to test an ASP application in 'isolation' and seem to be having problems with connecting to the Server.
The setup is EXACTLY like the production environment except for the fact that I am using the Beta version of SQL.
The error refers to SQL Server not existing. I get this error also if I try to open the Query Analyzer without FIRST starting the Services via the Service Manager - so I think it is probably something wrong with the Beta Installation rather than using the BETA version as a back-end.
I've tried using the Computer name as the Server to connect to as well as 127.0.0.0 - neither seem to want to connect.
I can connect manually and see the Database objects. I've even connected, left the connection open and tried running the application again. I still get the same error.
Has anyone experienced this before? i.e not being able to connect to a BETA version of SQL to test an ASP application locally.
