When installing - I'm getting - Failed to execute SQL string, error detail: Invalid object name 'master.sys.databases'., SQL key: createAdventureWorks1.........

I'm installing on XP and trying to point to an existing SQL Server 2000 database.

Thanks,

Jason

Hello Jason,

As noted in our system requirements page, creating the AdventureWorks database used by the examples, requires you to have SQLEXPRESS or SQL2005 + installed on your machine.
This however does not limit you in any way to use our product. You can install it without the examples as you've figured out and still use the product with your custom database or any other supported datasource.


All the best,

I am having the same error and I have all of the necessary requirements.

Visual Studio 2008
Vista ~ logged in as administrator
SQL Express

Is there another cause for this error that I am overlooking?

Hi Patrick,

It would seem that you do not have administrative privileges to your database server. Please set the correct rights and try installing again.

I am having a similar issue when trying to install the reporting tools Q2 2009.  I have SQL Server 2005 installed with the default instance name (MSSQLSERVER).  When installing the demos, I am given the option of selecting (local) or (local)\SQLExpress.  I do not have SQL Express installed or any instance other than the SQL Server 2005 instance named MSSQLSERVER.  I select (local), but the installation halts and displays an error.

After installing an additional instance named SQLExpress and selected (local)\sqlexpress from the database server drop down during installation, the demos were installed as expected.  However, from looking through the forums, this has been a known issue through several releases and still has not been corrected.

Hi Matt Place,

I would like to point you at some blog posts for additional understanding of the problem:
    localhost vs. (local) in SQL Server connection strings
    Understanding “Data Source=(local)” in SQL Server Connection Strings

The default SQL Server instance is named MSSQLSERVER, but in the connection string it is referred to as (local). This means that you should connect to the local default SQL Server instance.

The installation failure can be caused by insufficient privileges of your windows account in the SQL Server. 

When you install SQL Express, the installation creates by default a login account from your current windows user account and this is the reason for the Reporting installation to succeed.

It is impossible for us to prevent such failures because the reasons for it are too complex.
