I'm trying to install SQL Server 2008 R2 (the one from dreamspark) on my computer for local testing on a database app I'm working on. For some reason when it gets to the form that handles service accounts and server collation configuration, SQL
Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher greys out the Startup Type box, and SQL Server Browser greys out the account and password boxes. I can't figure out how to change these in any way to make the darn program install. The help file told me to uninstall
any existing SQL Server items on the computer, and to the best of my knowledge the only ones left were installed with Visual Studio 2010.
I'm using it so that I can ultimately convert a bunch of .DBF files to SQL Server files that I can import into a Windows Form App. It's not going to be used for any kind of networking or connectivity for some time, I just need it to fuse a bunch of
dbf's into a coherent VS compatible file (I've read I have to run them through Access or Excel first, which I can an will do).
Can anyone explain what's going on with this or offer a better help link than the program? I'm completely confused by their entire set up and installation methods.
May the fleas of a thousand camels feast happily on the lower regions of your enemies. And may their arms be too short to scratch!
