I am trying to run: DotNetNuke_04.09.00_Install
As I had Express 2005 on my machine, it had always found the server itself under the default name ./SQLEXPRESS and the installation was taking about 2 minutes.
By the time now I just have Express2008 (can't have another server on my machine because then login fails for NT Authority and the other applications don't work).
B.T.W. This time all applications and programms can connect to this 2008 using ./machine name, but just DNN can't. I have used several combinations like ./machine name, ./machine name/User, IP Address, Windows shar name, etc. but nothing works.
Could it be that DNN just can connect an run database installation scripts under 2005 at all? Otherwise I have no idea. I think I Should forget about a localhost installation of DNN
