Can't connect to SQL 2005 Enterprise using Management Studio with Server Name (only (local) works

  
This is a test system, everything running locally & no domains. Win 2003 Ent. Server & SQL Server 2005 Enterprise. I can't log into SQL Server Management Studio using the server name & using either Windows Authentication or SQL login. If I change the name of the server in the drop-down list to "(local)", I connect just fine (both Windows & SQL security modes). Shared Memory, Named Pipes & TCP/IP enabled in both server & client. Remote connections allowed. I have IP adresses (both 127.0.0.1 & external IP) in my hosts file pointing to the server name. Does SQL require a DNS server? This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I can't install SQL 2005 SP3 due to authentication failure since there's no way to enter (local) as the server name. SQL tools (management studio, SP install) seem to see the SQL server running but won't authenticate the user through any means other than setting server name to (local). This is driving me crazy!!!

Export data from local to online database

  
Hi MasterMinds, Here i want to export my data from local sql server 2000 DB to online sql server 2008 DB. waiting for your responses. 

local pipes vs. network pipes (to connect to SQL Server)

  
Choosing a Network Protocol (SQL Server 2008 R2) tells: "It is also important to clarify if you are talking about local pipes or network pipes. If the server application is running locally on the computer that is running an instance of SQL Server, the local Named Pipes protocol is an option. Local named pipes runs in kernel mode and is very fast" Well, it is not me who is talking in cited article, I believe so. Should it be understood that "If the server application is running locally on the computer that is running an instance of SQL Server" and configuring/choosing Named Pipes mean running "local Named Pipes"?

Cannot connect to Sql Server Local Instance

  
Hello allI just installed sql server 2005 to my pc and when i try to log in to the server instance i get an error log in failed for user xxx (error 18456). I browse to the server instance and i keep getting the same error even though i chose windows authentication option during the installation. I restarted the service for the sql server instance (which is running).The only problem i can think about is a problem with permissions but again there should not be any problem there because i logged in as administrator. Any suggestions please!!!

Unable to connect to local host service when a splash screen is show before start the services

  
Hi all:


I want to show a splash screen before start the local host services, the host can be open without error, however the client (Form1) is not able to connect to the service. Without the splash screen, every thing work fine. Any idea why ?

Here is the code.



Imports System.ServiceModel


<ServiceContract()> _
Public Interface IHelloWorldService
   <OperationContract()> _
   Function SayHello(ByVal name As String) As String
End Interface

Public Class HelloWorldService
   Implements IHelloWorldService

   Public Function SayHello(ByVal name As String) As String Implements IHelloWorldService.SayHello
      Return String.Format("Hello, {0}", name)
   End Function
End Class

Module Module1
   Private host As ServiceHost
   Private frmSplash As Form

   Sub Main()

Not able to Connect Access 2010 or Sharepoint Designer 2010 to the Local SP 2010 Development Environ

  

I was able to install and configure SP 2010 Foundation on a Windows 7 Home Premium Edition as a Development Environment.  But I am facing  following issues:

a)cannot export lists from Access DB (Reason not able to connect to the local site on my machine) 

b) for a list on SP site can't "Open with Access" - Access application is triggered, but the list doesn't show-up.

c) open a Page or List for edit with Sharepoint Designer ( SharePoint Designer application gets triggered  but it get message "Unable to open Web site, Possible Causes: ..."

d) Also "Open Site" for local site on my machine gives the same error as in point c) above. 

These 4  unsuccessful operations happen only for the local development site (created on my laptop), all the above operations are successful though when I do them on a web hosted SP 2010 site. I have given "Full Control" permission for my login on the Central Administration. So what is wrong with the local site which prevents SharePoint Designer and Access DB connectivity?

Hi. I'm on Win7 64 bit and have installed SQL 2008 Express 64 bit. The named instance is "sqlexpress" but when using the SQL Server Management Studio 2005, it won't let me connect. It doesn't see it.

Local variable scoping in C#

  
In my previous post, Compiler-generated scopes for local variable declarations, I briefly touched on the issue of multiple meanings applied to the same name. In this post, I'll aim to flush out the compiler's rules with regards to binding names in their local scopes.

Compiler-generated scopes for local variable declarations

  
I was tasked with understanding and fixing a bug on error reporting with foreach iteration variables the other day, and it got me thinking about local variable scoping rules in C# in general. First, the bug.
