Named Instances and SS2K

By Steve Jones, 2005/11/18

I saw Alex's post on installing a named instance of SS2K5 and having issues with SS2K. I wanted to note that Dale Corey and I are working on a SQL Server Management Studio book and I needed to check some things using the RTM code. I need my desktop to work, it's the primary place where runs from, so I took the laptop and installed the RTM developer edition code. Now I already have SS2K on there and wanted to keep it, so I added an SS2K5 named instance to it.

No issues. Both start fine for me. XP, SP2.

Not sure what happened with Alex, but it worked for me. I have had the June and Sept CTPs on here prior to this, same named instance name.
