It says it can't find sql server the way you're trying to connect to it.

Do you have both SQL 2012 and SQL 2008 / 2008 R2 installed on the same computer? If so, you'll need to apply at least Service Pack 3 for 2008, or Service Pack 1 for 2008 R2.

no i have only sql 2008 R2 , do it work if i install sql 2008 sp3 ?

If you've only get 2008 R2, then you can't install a service pack for 2008.

Try 2008 R2 SP3 instead:[^]
