View Full Version : ISSQLServerInstall failure

06-09-2004, 03:03 PM
I am getting consistently during the installation of my InstallScript MSI an error connecting to a deployed MSDE SQL server, however, I have not problem connecting to the same SQL server using ODBC Data Source admin tool.

Attached is a simple InstallScriptMSI project (within SqlTest.zip) that will:

Install Redistributables MSDE 2000 SP3a as MSSQL$TELESYM_DB_SVC
Install Redistributable MDAC 2.8
SQL Script to create a TABLE within NorthWest database.

This is the install process using SqlTest.ism
Built and Ran SqlTest.ism
SQL Server panel of Install
SQL Server: (local)\TELESYM_DB_SVC,
SQL Authentication,
Login ID: sa,
Password: manager
Got an error 27502, see below "verbose setup log"
Verified that MSSQL$TELESYM_DB_SVC service was started
Verified that an ODBC Data Source could be added (TELESYM_DB_SRC) using Server: (local)\TELESYM_DB_SVC, Connection test was successful.

From verbose setup log:

Action 11:59:22: ISSQLServerInstall.

Error 27502.Could not connect to SQL Server (local)\TELESYM_DB_SVC.

The verbose setup log (SetupVerbose.log) for this failed install is within the zip file.
