I have a one station that can't connect to a sql server with an application. it has windows 7 home prm. (others PCs connect fine)
the error is:
login failed with error 1 could not access database server ......
 ado error 17  server doesn't exist  or acess denied

when I go to odbc I can add system dsn or user dsn to that server with success.  but could not get this application to work. any ideas.

Is the application connecting via TCP/IP or named pipes?  Does it make the connection via IP, netbios name or FQDN (fully qualified domain name)?  Is the SQL Server local or on a different server?

How long does it take to report "SQL Server does not exist or access is denied".  If it's fairly immediate, it's the access is denied.  If it takes 5-30 seconds, it's the does not exists or possibly more accurate "i don't know where it is".

Ok.  then SQL Server just doesn't know how to find it or possibly the firewall is blocking it.  

Is this a home brew application or a commercial application?  Does it work on different machines?  Have you tried "TEMPORARILY" disabling the windows firewall on the windows PC, or, adding an exception for this application?

AV or windows firewall?  Is UAC enabled and did you try right click > run as administrator.  Are the other PCs W7?

It was something to do with application.

It was something to do with application itself. I reinstalled it and it worked. something was missing.!!!
