Solution Manager 7.0 Installation Error on Import ABAP -Test DB connection

Hi, SDN fellows.

I am installing Solution Manager 7.0. In Step 16 of 44 - Import ABAP, I encountered an error when the installer was testing the database connection. It failed at this command:

R3load.exe -testconnect

Below is the error I copied from the log viewer. Thanks for all possible advices/suggestions to fix this issue.

    BTW the server I am using to install Solution Manager 7.0 is with installed MS SQL 2005 Developer edition (Version 9.00.1399.06 (Intel X86)) in Window Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (Version 6.1.7601).

    I didn't use the RDMNS MSSQLSRV 2005 SP3 installers to install MS SQl Server 2005 Enterprise edition. As far as I know, they are technically equivalent, just the licensing is different.

    Here is the result when I run @@selectversion from MS SQL Management Studio:

    Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.1399.06 (Intel X86) Oct 14 XXXX 00:33:37 Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation Developer Edition on Windows NT 6.1 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1).

      I restarted the SAPinst, and it did complete the Import ABAP step successfully. Now, I got another error in Import Java Dump. I am creating a new post for that.
