can you clarify a bit? If you use OpenAccess ORM EXPRESS, you should use MS SQL Express for instance. If you use the Trial of OpenAccess you can use any database supported.
Please make sure to use a supported scenario with a clean installation (uninstall everything and install the right combination).
Please let us know if you then still experience problems, providing detailed information about the database version installed.
