SQL Server Connectivity


I am in the process of upgrading to a Windows 7 Pro machine. I have installed a trial version of CR8. I am having difficulty connecting to an SQL database running Windows Server 2008 Standard. I am receiving the follwoing error.


Failed to open the connection.

Details: ADO Error Code: 0x

Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL server

Description: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).] SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

SQL State: 08001

Native Error: [Database Vendor Code:17]


I have turned off UAC and the windows firewall on the Win 7 machine to no avail. There is no fire wall running on the server.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
