im using VS 2008 TS. For the last few weeks i was having this problme that i cannot connect to the SQL sever from my Crystal reports data source config. When i try to craete a new connection it doesnt display any DB server in the server drop down.
I use SQL server 2005 std.
I had this problem before too but for somthing i did or someone did to my config started o work but not this time. I was told to change the SQL server instance name to a name that does not have special chars and i did that too still has the same issue.
