XL Reporter - Error Preparing XLR User


Trying once more to install XL Reporter to one of our clients;

on every trial to install XLR I'm faced with new problems I never had before ...

... I grow more and more tired of it ...

OK, then:

I was logged in to Windows with admin-rights and to SAP as manager.

Our clients SAP version is SAP2005A PL23, the XLR version is

The authorization process to login to the sql-server is on Windows level.

There is no problem to access the database this way using the sql-server


During the execution of the Install Shield Wizard I got the following


"Error Preparing XLRUser;

<<Db Util Execution Error>>

Source: MS OLE DB Provider for SQL Server

Message: invalid authorization specification

Script: <a long path>\createXLRUser.sql(0)"

By the way: I had a look at the sql-code in this script and tried to

execute it while being logged in to the database; the error message

from sql-server was: "can't change owner of master database"

Thanks in advance,
