A number of years ago, I purchased a developers version of SQL Server and that is what I have installed on this computer. I have purchased and installed it on at least 4 systems over the years, currently a windows 8.1 box. The errors look like it is a licensing issue? Unbelievable!

Yes it is a licensing issue, It still has mainstream support until July 8th, 2014, contact Microsoft Licensing

I've been trying to contact Microsoft tech support to resolve this issue. Rather than explain, I am posting an email to my client about my experiences.

Hi Troy,

I’ve been in touch with Microsoft tech support (in India).  I’m on hold now on my third attempt. Correction, disconnected for the third time after holding 30 minutes. No one so far has a clue as to what is going on.

I’m going to try the Experts again.

This is unbelievable, or is it?

Phil

Do I need to open up a new case to find out how to get Microsoft support? I've been trying all day, Nobody from Microsoft that I've talked with has a clue about my issue. Not only that, nobody has a clue how to get me to a technician. I'm not at all surprised why Microsoft stock hasn't gained any value in the last 13 years.
