Hey all.
I got an evaluation version of MSSQLServer 2000 and I want to install it.
my system is WinXP Pro, and I want to install SQLServer.
when running the installation file, I got a message says that I am not a server so it will not
install server components neither the server.
after finishing the installing and running Enterprise Manager tool, I found there is no server.
any solution, I am sure we can install SQLServer at localhost.
thanks for help.

The installer doesn't want to install unless you spend the extra money to buy XP Server. Gotta love that.

I remember a few years back (was this NT 4, or Windows 2000?) somebody found a registry setting which, if you changed it, could turn a cheap Workstation license into an expensive Server license. The platform turned out to be absolutely identical: when running in Workstation mode, the OS would simply refuse to accept multiple file sharing connections, etc. I'm sure Microsoft has changed things since them.

Anyway, this has nothing to do with JDBC, so I'm moving it to "General Computing" for any further discussion.

Get a copy of SQL Server "Developer's Edition".

That will install on XP/Pro.

If you just want a simple version for development work then MSDE (Desktop Engine) version is free. More info can be found at: Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine
