For those poor people (like myself) who have to use MS SH*T SQL 2005 and cannot connect it.
I have to use sql server 2005 (another piece of sh*t from MS) at work. It takes me hours to connect this garbage. I end up find I have to enable TCP/IP under "Protocols for MSSQLSERVER". To do this, you need go to
START >> PROGRAMS >> MS Sql server 2005 >> Configuration Tools >> Sql Server configuration Manger
Click "+" sign next to "Sql server 2005 network configuration" then
click to highlight "Protocols for MSSQLSERVER" then
in right panel right click "TCP/IP" and enable it.
DO NOT for get restart you sql server service and pray to dear God your company will dump MS one day.
DO NOT install "ActiveScript engine" as MS suggested. You don't want extra trouble and junk.
