Re: Database Creation

I have tried several times to create a new instance with MSDE according to the instructions above, each time the installation rolls back.  How to I overcome this?

Re: Database Creation

Don't install MSDE, instead install SQL 2005 Express Edition SP2.  It is recommended by RIM: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/software/professional_exchange_ver_january09.pdf

 Then install SQL 2005 Managment Studio Express

Go slowly through the SQL Express install choosing advanced / custom whenever you can and you can decide if you want to install as teh default instance or a named instance.
