SqlServer2008 Error

Hey chaps,

I’m getting the following errors when i try to install sql server 2008 on my desktop, running win7 home edition.
The password is correct. I’m not sure why this would be happening.

Your help is much appreciated. :slight_smile:

Damn man, I ran into this problem when I installed it. Where it says “Administrators”, change it to “Your windows account name” So, if your login name is: John, use john. Also, the password it the same one as your windows account. Should work.


I tried that… didn’t work. :frowning:

You should probably use the built-in accounts to run SQL Server unless you’ve got a real defined need to use something else. Been a while since I set it up, but I think there is an option for NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE in there.

Yep, I used NT Authority and it worked. Thanks guys. Much appreciated.
