Question SQL 2005 Server Problems
Im having trouble with the SQL Server. When installing the program the Database services will not correctly install. An error message appears saying that the service will not start. I have tried every option i can find and nothing seems to work. Im using the server to connect databases in a program called ACT. When trying to open databases, a message says "could not connect to sql server instance". I think it is an installation problem. How can i get the server database to install correctly. i have unistalled and reinstalled several times following all directions correctly. i Have download the SQL server 2005 express edition and installed it but still can not get it to get the database services to install.
