View Full Version : Filtering localDB instances from the SQL Server login dialog

08-27-2015, 07:20 AM
Is there a way to filter out localDB instances for the SQL Server browser/login dialog? The product I'm working on doesn't currently support localDB, so I'd like to display only valid choices for a server in the menu. Any tips would be much appreciated.

If you are using a Basic MSI project, you can accomplish it by writing your own custom action. Check out this thread (https://community.flexerasoftware.com/showthread.php?192260-Filtered-list-displaying-specific-instance-of-SQL-Server-on-SQL-Browse) for more details.
