I have SQL Server Express running a backend database for one of my Appliications on a Windows XP computer...
The SQL Server instance was stopped and would not restart after Acronis Backup software was installed.
1. When you try to restart the Service you get permission errors (Loacal System, User Administrator etc)
2. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the SQL Instance for my Application
- The Uninstall failed but it acts like the instance has been removed ("No Instances available" in Add New Programs now) allthough a new install thinks the instance is still there and won't install
Has anyone heard of a conflict between Acronis Backup Software install and previously installed (and functioning) SQL Instances?
