ODBC connection to SQL Server 2005 Standard (on windows xp) with Windows authentication does NOT wor

I reviewed lots of postings, still could not find an answer. If I choose Windows authentication: - with TCP/IP and "Dynamically determine port" checked, I get the following error "The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection; - with Named Pipes, Server Name & Pipe Name as "VSAXAONG", I get two errors, one after the other on the same pop-up:       Connection failed  SQL State 01000  SQL Server Error 1385 [Microsoft] [ODBC SQL Server Driver] [Named Pipes] ConnectionOpen (Connect()).       Connection failed  SQL State 08001 SQL Server Error 17 [Microsoft] [ODBC SQL Server Driver] [Named Pipes] SQL Server does not exist or access denied. If I choose SQL Server authentication and fill in the password - the ODBC connection works fine. I have to say that I created two different logins on the server, one for Windows authentication, and one for SQL Server authentication - both for the same Windows user name. I would appreciate any help I can get on this.  Thank you all in advance.

Windows 7 RC ODBC Access driver

Many apologies for posting here, but it's the nearset I can find. I am running the Windows 7 RC (x64) and need the MS Access 32-bit ODBC driver in order to connect to an in-house application. The driver doesn't appear to be shipped with Windows 7 and I cannot find anywhere to download it.On further inspection, the 32-bit SQL Server ODBC driver appears not to ship either and I need that as well.

Weird Exception: Method not found: 'Double System.Windows.Controls.ScrollViewer.get_ContentHorizon

Hi guys I have an XBAP application that uses a Xamdatagrid from Infragistics. I have some filtering on this grid, that rebinds after a filter. The problem is, when a user has scrolled to a certain point and then filters, the rebinding causes the grid to scroll to the beginning position of the grid. Now how I solve this is by getting an instance of the ScrollViewer, I get the ScrollViewer.ContentHorizontalOffset and then I do a ScrollViewer.ScrollToHorizontalOffset after it filters.   Now here comes the problem. For 99% of the users of this xbap app, this will work absolutely fine. Most, if not all of the users run exactly the same machines, XP 64 bit with 8GB RAM. The other 1% get the error: Method not found: 'Double System.Windows.Controls.ScrollViewer.get_ContentHorizontalOffset()'. I cannot reproduce this error on my own box, our dev server or our production server, it is a phantom exception that only pops up on a certain condition. I have even wrapped the "offending" code in a try catch and it still doesn't solve it. If I set the DispatcherUnhandledExceptionArgs Handled to true, it works, but it doesn't feel right. How is this possible? If the method doesn't exist, how can it compile? Why does that method exist for 99% of the other users running the exact same machines? I have googled my fingers raw without any valid results and this issue is frustrat

SQL 2005: Error 15401 - Windows NT user or **group** not found


I have a fresh install of Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2005 x64 on top of that, with Service Pack 3. This server, SERV, is in DOMAINA which trusts (one-way) DOMAINB.

When I try to create a login for a group in my domain, I get the following error:
Msg 15401, Level 11, State 1, Procedure sp_grantlogin, Line 49
Windows NT user or group 'DOMAINA\groupname' not found. Check the name again.

I get the same error whether using "create login [domaina\groupname] from widnows", "sp_grantlogin [domaina\groupname]" or Manangement Studio.
This happens ONLY for groups , both in DOMAINA and DOMAINB domains. I can add individual users from both A and B and local computer. For local computer groups: I can add default Windows groups (like Users, Guests, Event Log Readers) by [BUILTIN\Event Log Readers], etc. but not by SERV\Event Log Readers; for custom created group MyLocal it's the other way around: I can via SERV\MyLocal but not via BUILTIN\MyLocal.

If I add a domain group from either DOMAINA or DOMAINB to a local group, whether my own or builtin, I can login to SQL Server remotely using creditentials of a user who belongs to that group (user DOMAINB\ux belongs to DOMAINB\group and DOMAINB\group to SERV\MyLocal). After sp_grantlogin [serv\mylocal] of cours

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified


trying to install sql server2005 on a windows 2003 server box.

getting msg below at the sql server .  i looked at other posts on trying to uninstall  SQL Native Access Client and norton antivirus.  i could never find the snac on the add - remove programs and this server does not have a virus protection program yet.

here's the history of the installs on the server:

wanted to test a 2005 upgrade so:

  1) installed sql server 2000 then sp4 then restored some databases to it - all OK

  2) tried to upgrade to sql 2005 but ran into problems and left it at that.

had a disk drive crash on the d drive so lost the installs but not the operating system

when the drive was replaced, left alone for a while

then wanted to test a straight 2005 install

  1) removed the broken 2005 attempt

  2) removed the 2000

  3) installed 2005 and got the error on the subject line:

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Setup

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 Refer to server error logs and setup logs for more information.

Accessing SQL Server via ODBC on 64-bit Windows 7

I inherited an app written in Visual C++ 6.0 Pro and it uses ODBC to talk to a SQL Server 2005.  This works fine on XP and 32-bit Win7 systems.  I've installed the app on my Win7 x64 system and it also works fine except that when it tries to open any of the same SQL Server tables it dies.  This is also true on a remote 64-bit Win7 system.  This happens when the app tries to make a connection to SQL Server on a CDatabase::OpenEx due to an Unhandled Exception with an "MFC Application has stopped working" error message.  Not surprisingly, when I build and run the app on the Win7 system the same thing happens.  Another piece to the puzzle is that on my Win7 system when I try to add a new CRecordset class for a DB on the server, the New Class wizard can't "see" any of the DBs there even though I have my system data source correctly defined in my ODBC Data Source Admin.  I can see the databases when I try to create a new class on my XP system though.  I can access the DBs on the server via my MS SQL Server Management Tool on both Win7 and XP though.  The version of ODBC running on the Win7 system is 6.1.  When I go to my Control Panel for adjusting my computer settings it lists "ODBC (32-bit)" which is where I set up my System DSN.  I'm wondering if it really is 32-bit.  Any idea

SQL Server 2005 Express ODBC connection error with Windows Vista Business

I have a SQL Server 2005 Express Edition installed on a Windows Server 2003 domain machine. When I do a connection with a client running Windows XP through the SQL 2008 ODBC driver I have no problem.  The problem is when I try to establish a connection using a client running Windows Vista Business Edition which is a member of the domain. Please help me to solve this issue.

Thanks in advance

I have a Windows 7 - 32 bit system.  Older software I need to run is requiring the SQL 2000 ODBC driver.  Since Windows 7 won't let me install the MDAC 2.8 - how do I get this on the machine so my software will install and run?

Sql 2008 on Windows 2008 domain error: windows nt user or group not found

I am running sql 2008 R2 and win 2008 R2 and simply trying to add a new domain user into sql, but I get the error above. What's weird is that when I do a check names from the add user or group window it finds the account I want to use. I've tried adding a different account, but I get the same issue--so its not the account. I've also tried running the create login t-sql command but it gives the same error. I've also tried disabling, via the gpedit.msc tool, the digitally encrypt or sign secure channel keys. But that did not work either.

Windows 7 64 Bit ODBC


I am trying to import an XLS 97-2002 into an application created with Visual Studio 2005. The import works perfectly on a Windows 7 32 bit system.  It does not work on a Windows 7 64 bit system.  The error message is a System.Data.ODBC.ODBCException:  ERROR [IM002] Data Source Name not found and no default driver specified. 

I am specifiying the driver.

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data Source name not found and no device driver specified

I get the above error message when running my VB6 sp4 application on a new Win7 workstation (32 bit machine). The app runs fine on a WIn xp sp3 workstation. The app does require a DSN setup in the ODBC section and I setup the SQL connection the same as I do on an XP machine. I also test the connection on the WIN & machine and it "test successfully". After the error above the app returns a runtime error -2147467259 (80004005). I am attaching my connection string:
Connection string being used by ADO Data Control (part of VB6):
Any help would be appreciated.


Problem connecting using ODBC from Windows Server 2008R2 x64




I have strange problem: when I'm trying to create new “System DSN” (ODBC Data Source Administrator) using either SQL Native Client or “integrated” SQL Serve source I’m getting next:

Connection failed:

SQLState: '08001'

SQL Server Error: 1326

[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [1326].

Connection failed:

SQLState: 'HYT00'

SQL Server Error: 0

[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]Login timeout expired

what strange for me – is that I can create this Data Source either on the other machine (Windows XP there) or on the server host (Server 2008 x64)…

Windows Firewall turned off on that host and I have no idea what to check next…

Any help appreciated.


Best regards...
