Hi All,


I was wondering if someone could help,  I am getting this error:

Product: PolyMon -- Error 26201. Error -2147467259: failed to create SQL database: PolyMon, error detail: unknown error.


I have my regional settings set to New Zealand.  I am installing all components on a local XP machine, I am a local administrator.  Windows firewall is turned off.  AV is turning off as well.. I tried manually creating the database and executing the scripts (which completes successfully) and then installing the executive and manager but I get errors (PolyMon Manager has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.) when starting PolyMon. 


Any help would be very much appreciated,

Okay, I found the answer if anyone else has this problem.


1. I was not connecting to the right database when running the script, by default it goes to the system DB not the manually created user DB

2.  On installation of the Manager/Executive you need to specifiy the DB server name as "myserver\sqlexpress"


thanks for reading.
