I may have made a huge mistake repairing SQL Server Management 2008 Express. Here are the details:
I'm running Windows 7 on a Toshiba Laptop.
SQL Manager 2008 had been installed and was working fine.
I had some registry errors popping up, so I ran ARO 2013 to do a clean up. Doing this caused SQL Server not to open.
I downloaded and ran the repair portion of SQL Server Mngmnt.
This does allow the program to startup. However I'm getting a error at login that says "A network-related or specific-instance error occured while establishing a connection to SQL Server was not found or was not accessible."
I've tried to open with both Windows Authentication and the Server Authentication with the password I had created orginally. I still can't get this to open.
Can someone help??
In advance, thanks for your help.
