Still installation problems



i am still trying to install BES. My problem is, that the installer fails at the point "Database Setting". Database location is Local. SQL Server name is correct, databasename is default (BESMgmt) with default port (1433).


I deleted all BES Software and started a new installation (this time i followed the flash tutorial, not the written one). I cant find the point "MSDE Option" in the installation process. Is there already any in my SBS server? I can see instances named "SBS Monitoring" and "Sharepoint". What can i do now? Shall i install MSDE myself? will it crush the "SBS Monitoring" or "Sharepoint"?

Re: Still installation problems

Thanks a lot, it worked! Solved!


Maybe this information should be mentioned in the flash tutorial or in the written one, it could help a lot of people (in SBS Servers are this Instances already installed)
