Hi Ganesh, Thanks for your response.
I have the setup of MSDE 2000 Release A done and saved in my C:\MSDERelA\ folder.
I tried to install a default instance configures to use Windows Authentcation Mode by executing:
in the Command Prompt.
My PC responded: Windows XP Setup
Please go to the Control Panel to install and configure system components.
I do not know what to do to get the system components of "MSDE 2000 Release A" configurated and have the MSDE 2000 Release A working in my PC!!! Please help and advise me again.
Let me tell you two more things:
(1) I tried to get Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition installed in my PC before I did this MSDE 2000 Release A installation. Now both "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition" and "MSDE 2000 Release A" are not successfully installed and configured in my PC. Can these two SQL Servers co-exist and operate in my Windows XP Pro PC?
(2) I used the following to test SQL Server in my PC: http://localhost/NorthDB/ch13_ex01.asp
The latest result of this testing is listed below:
