Firstly, excuse me if I opened my subject in wrong place.
And let me explain my story in a short way.
I developed a Windows application with VS 2008 C# and SQL Server 2005. I installed my application on test environment.There was no error when
installing.But,when I try to run my program, it gave me the error below:
"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: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)"
My test environment specifications are:
- Windows XP SP2
- NET Framework 3.5
- SQL server 2005 express
My deployment package has Windows Intaller 3.1, NET framework 3.5, SQL server 2005 express sp2, and my application.
In order to test my SQL server 2005 express on test machine, I installed SSMS Express. I can reach my sql instance as its name is SQL_Express.And I can do my database actions by using SSMS Express.
But,when I tried to run my application, I take this error above.
Can someone help me please?
Thanks of all.
