Windows Server 2000 machines accessing SQL Server 2008 require SQL Tools for installing the NotifyLink SQL Database component
Posted by Donna DeEulio on 06 October 2009 04:14 PM

Installation of the NotifyLink SQL Database component (version 4.6.0) fails when the machine you are running the installer on is  Windows Server 2000 and accessing SQL Server 2008. The machine fails to connect to the Microsoft SQL Server.


The SQL Tools need to be installed on the Windows 2000 machine in order for it to connect to the SQL 2008 server.
