Problems installing SQL 2005 April CTP
I hit a showstopper installing the SQL Server 2005 April CTP. I think the problem may have been related to having an instance of SQL Server 2000 already installed on the box. During setup I got the following error message.
"SQL Server Setup could not connect to the database service for server
configuration. The error was: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source
name not found and no default driver specified".
\SETUP\sqlncli.msi REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=OMUS /QB
Thanks Mauro. I’m now subscribed!
