I installed MSDE via Visual Studio .Net, anything installed fine, but now I get the error when I load up the computer:
Net Service Configuration:The Specified Service does not exist as an installed service.
My computer name is Toby. The MSSQLServer Agent on the bottom right icon displays two *servers* Under Server
it displays Toby and Toby\VSDotNet.
The Toby Server is the one causing me the grief, it fails to start, and I get the above error when I try selecting it. When I select the server Toby\VSDotNet it has the green play button display, indicating the service started fine. How do I get rid of this message and/or remove the server Toby?
I had previously had problems installing Personal edition of SQL 2000 on my Windows XP computer.
