HI,
When you register your MSSQL Server use SQL Server login info
, not Windows NT login info.
And you don't need to login in the computer with MSSQL Server,
only to the MSSQL Server itself.
Sincerely,
Nestorua.

ah so you want to do something like a service ?
that can run even if a user isn't logged on to the computer ?

I suggest using SvCom
it can crate an application that runs as a service on NT plaforms and as normal exes on 9x platforms

you could create two separate apps
one to run on win9x and one for NT

another way is to create a wrapper for NT Services
then uppon application startup you check what platform is the app run on
if it's win 9x then use RegisterServiceProcess to register your app as a "service"
to make windows run your app automaticall uppon boot (not user login) you have to add a registry entry in the HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\runservices\ key

here's my wrapper function for this :

uses Registry;
function AutoRunApp(const Name: string; const Enabled: Boolean = true): Boolean;
const RunWhere = '\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices';
begin
     Result:=false;
     with TRegistry.Create do
       try
          RootKey:=HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
          if OpenKey(RunWhere, true) then
             try
                if Enabled then
                   WriteString(Name, ParamStr(0))
                else
                   DeleteValue(Name);
                Result:=true;
             finally
                CloseKey;
             end;
       finally
          Free;
       end;
end;


for an NT Service wrapper you can use KOL Service

I find the best way of connecting to MSSQL in Delphi is by using the ADO components.

As a rule I will have some sort of configuration (ini or registry) that tells the app which connection file to use.

The connection file is a microsoft datalink file (".udl" extension).  Here you can specify the username and password.
