I don't know if this can be done. If it can, you will need to make sure that both are configured to listen on different port numbers, as well and ensure that they are being installed in different locations using different databases.

What requirements do you have that you need to install two SQL Servers on the same machine?

Ok I have been slowely - and ever so slowely teaching myself VB.net Currently I have created an MDB file by code, and added fields to the MDB file by code. I like this solution because, ( im assuming ) if I create an EXE and I load an MDB file, I can see if certain fields are there, and if not add them. Kinda like an Update that is imbeded into the EXE, so you dont always have to create an Install shield.

I have SBS2003-SP1 (with MSDE) installed. I have read several "How-To's" on upgrading MSDE to 2K5Express, but none have directly answered the SBS2003/MSDE install scenario: is MSDE a "module" of Sharepoint/SBS- Monitoring, or is it an MSI install, brought in with the OS install? The How-To's state that if you can see it in Add/Remove programs, then it is an MSI install and 2K5Express will see it and upgrade it and the databases as...

I hope someone can point me in the right direction, please. TIA. Basically, I got a Vista OS machine to test my VB6 app on it as some

Hello, all, I started out thinking my problems were elsewhere but as I have worked through this I have isolated my problem, currently, as a difference between MSDE and SQL Express 2005 (I'll just call it Express for simplicity). I have, to try to simplify things, put the exact same DB on two systems, one running MSDE and one running Express. Both have 2 Ghz processors (one Intel, one AMD), both have a decent amount of RAM (Intel system...

Just wondering if this is possible, I'm coding this application that will run on a network with a SQL Server 2000, however each workstation (notebook computers in this case) will need to copy some of that data locally to a SQL 2005 Express instance. On the computer I'm developing on I'd like to have an instance of both MSDE and SQL 2005 Express running so I can replicate the network as close to possible while writing code. Alternatively I...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
