RE: UnInstalling Sql Server Warning

G'day Bob and others,

 

Which download page are you referring too as I didn't spot anything on
either of the basic and advanced package pages.  I too would be interested
to know where to find the product key for SQLServer 2008 Express.  Perhaps a
phone call to MS may be in order?

 

Cheers.

AB

I can find the register now button, but I don't have a key.  I saw something
on the download page about it so maybe I'll go back there this evening and
click on the link.

Have you ever registered any other products? I ask because a popup comes up
where you have to click on something, you are taken to a Microsoft Website
where you fill out some stuff and click to register your product, then, on
the Webpage it gives you a registration code where you copy it. Then you alt
tab back to your popup that is still on your computer and paste the code
into the text box and click the register button. You might even have had to
have set up a password in the Microsoft page. This is all just from memory
but I can dig into it more if you are not familiar withthe process. The
first time you go through the registration process with a screen reader is a
pain but it works even though it is a little confusing. If you need some
help I will see if I can make a step by step. I know that I had to use the
mouse keys, in windowyeyes, to click the Register Now button on the popup
that asks for the registration key after clicking the register under the
help menu.

It looks like I got configuration tools and import and export data 32 bit.  

 

How do you get a product key.  I went to help and clicked on register and it
expected me to already have a key.

 

Thanks again

Actually you don't open SqlServer like you do any other application. It is
just something that runs on your computer. You use some tools to manage the
Server and you connect to it from within a Application Program that you
might write. But, you do not open it. When you download it you should have a
folder entery added to your start menu like Microsoft Sql Server 2008
Express or something. If you expand and cursor down the list of items you
might see something like Configuration Manager, Management Studio and
perhaps some other things. The Configuration Manager and Managment Studio
are the things you click on to set properties or do things in your Server or
any DataBases you build and add to your Server. Like Visual Studio the IDEs
of the applications that you use are sometimes tricky to get around and use
with a Screen Reader. Sql Server is a complicated Animal. There is a group
of Professionals who usually work on diferent aspects of it. There are
Database Administraters, Dabase Analysts and DataBase Programmers. The
Administrators usually use the tools like the Configuration Manager, the
Analysts might use the Management Studio. Programmers will use a language
like Visual Basic or CSharp to work with a Sql Server Database. If your
download and install went ok the server should be running whenever you have
your computer turned on. What version did you download? I mean did you
download Sql Server Express 2008 with Tools or with Advanced Options or
which version? That will determine what applications are to be found in the
Microsoft Sql Server 2008 folder in your Start Menu and what settings might
have to be tweaked when you try to use it. Do not change anything yet until
you know if the install went through ok. Also, I hope you made a Restore
Point before you installed Sql Server. If your system is set up to do it
automatically you can use that restore point to back out of that install if
you have not changed or deleted any files or folders related to Sql Server
if things go bad. Do not try and remove it manually without reading some
articles on the steps to do that. Things need to be UnInstalled in a
particular order and you might get into trouble if done incorrectly so be
careful and don't change things unless you are sure what you are doing.
Remember they pay DB Administrators and Analysts anywhere from $50,000 to
upwards of 6 figures to do the stuff you are now playing with and they don't
give them that money for nothing!

It seemed to install fine but I haven't opened it yet.  Are there things to
watch for when opening it the first time?

Hi: If you are thinking of UnInstalling or Installing Sql Server be very
careful! If you have a problem with UnInstlling this software, and it has to
be done in a particular way or it won't work, you can make it almost
impossible to ReInstall and in the worst case you might have to ReInstall
the OS to get VS and Sql Server to work properly. Ask on list about
uninstalling that puppy unless you know how to do it!
