I keep getting An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server

I am trying to test blue ink for purchase, but am having trouble setting up northwind as my test example.

I am using sqlexpress 2005. Is this supported by blueink?

Hi belvinkr,

Yes, Blue Ink does support SQL Server 2005 Express Edition. Is the SQL Server on a different box? If so you may need to run the SQL Server Surface Area Configuration tool. If you're still having problems, please provide the error message.

I am testing this on my laptop, so everything is local and I have sysadmin permissions.

I can connect fine to other apps, so not sure what is missing.

The error is what was posted in my prior post:

Belvinkr,

Are you using the same connection string in Blue Ink as you are in other applications? Blue Ink automatically updates the connection string that it's going to use in the bottom text box when you change the provider or server or other controls.

If they're not the same can you try checking "Manual Connection String" and pasting in what you're using in the other applications?

If they are the same can you please post the connection string and I will diagnose locally.

Thanks,
Lee
