Powerbuilder - unable to connect to central database

I have a new customer who is using Power Builder for her business.  I have not yet had time to look at Power Builder which has been setup and installed by someone else, who is not available!   2 of my customer's PCs have had Windows XP Pro SR3  reinstalled on them by someone else, and I re-connected them to her Windows Server 2003 domain yesterday.  We are now getting an error message which says tUnable to connect to central database.  SQLCode:  -1SQLErrText: DBMS is not supported in your current installation.
Can you tell me what to do about this  -  it may be a very simple question but as I have no experience of this program and no knowledge about what has been setup, I am not sure where to turn!!

this can happen if the profile name changes :/  which it did...   when you joined the domain

you might disjoin the workstation, backup/move/delete the users profile on the local machine
then rejoin the domain and put the user back as a local administrator

this should ensure they pick up the same folder name in documents and settings, rather than username.domain or username.domain.000

thanks for that.  I'll revisit the customer site and try that and get back to you!  When you say "local administrator" do you mean administrator on the network domain or on the workstation?

local administrator = on the workstation only, unless you want them to be full domain-wide administrators which i don't think you do

hello all  -  i'm being nagged to complete the question!  I have now heard from the programmer who setup the Powerbuilder program for my customer and she has said that I need to download SQL 2005 client from and then run her routines which will setup the registry values and all the programming to look at the data on the server.  I now have full instructions from her which is great.  So thank you all for your help  -  in this instance I think I'll follow what she's told me to do!

solution actually came from elsewhere but i'm sure both of your answers were right  -  there should be a "Don't Know" letter grade i!!
