Error 26 When Trying to Connect / Create a Database
Posted on 2007-10-03
I am a new user to Visual Studio. I reached my limits with Access and I'm trying to move on.
Being new to this I need some help getting off the ground. When I try to create a new SQL server Database I keep getting an Error: An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.....(provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error 26 - Error Locating Server / Instance Specified).
I'm trying to use my computer as the host for right now to learn how to use the Studio. I've tried looking online for a solution to this, but the solutions are a little over my head since I've never used this.
Is this the right way to create a new database or is there another way?
I've updated my my Remote Connection to use TCP/IP only.
Any help getting started would be appreciated.
