    After downloading my (paid) copy of RadControls and installing, the Development Server automatically starts.  When I try to get anywhere, however, I can't because the server is looking for some data provider that does not exist and an MS SQL Server that does not exist.  For example,  I click on the Grid link in the left navigation panel which displays the RadGrid-specific information and API.  When I click on "Selecting" -> "Client-side Row Selection" the server throws:

     

    System.ArgumentException: Unable to find the requested .Net
    Framework Data Provider.  It may not be installed.

    Similarly, if I try to open the "Outlook Grid" info I get:

    System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: A network-related or   
    instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server.   
    The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is   
    correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections.   
    (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance   
    Specified)

    This isn't what I paid $800.00 for!  The website and the Development Server page clearly states this is supposed to be .NET 2.0 compatiable:

    Compatible with ASP.NET 2.0, 3.5

    RadControls Q2 2009 released 07/01/2009

    OS: Vista

    Hi Mark,

    You need to have SQLEXPRESS installed to work with our demos - this is FREE and comes with installation of Visual Studio. Can you check this?

    All the best,

    Thanks, but (a) that information would have been helpful if printed somewhere on the demo home page and (b) I deliberately did not load SQL Express on my workstation because I have limited RAM and our backend is Oracle.

    I have had the same problem, but when i tried to install SQL Express i ran into problems, is there any way to link it with SQL 2000 which we already have?

    Hi Alaa Majzoub,

    The databases in our online demos are in SQL 2005 Compatibility Level.
    I changed the level to a copy of the Telerik database to SQL 2000 Compatibility level and attached it here.
    Please try to attach it to your SQL 2000 server and then modify the connection strings in the web.config file.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Alaa Majzoub,

    I searched for this error and it seems that it might not be possible to attach that database to SQL 2000 server. I thought that changing the compatibility level would help, but it might not.

    What are the problems you have with SQL 2005 Express installation? Maybe it is better to resolve these so you take the full advantage of the newer version.
    Alternatively, you can try installing SQL 2008 Express and attach the original database from the Live Demos in it.

    Sincerely yours,

    thank you

    as said, i am getting the error
    Error 602: Could not find row in sysindexes for database ID 6, objectID 1, indexID 1, Run DBCC CHECKTABLE on sysindexes

    when the engine starts after i restarted the machine.

    i know it is my problem, but i am not an expert in 2005, so i thought you might have seen this before.


    if i install 2008 express, should i uninstall 2005? and will it deploy smoothly on an XP machine?

    No need Peter, thank you. I can now view demos online while developing using my SQL 2000. unless there are any compatibility
    issues I should know about.
