i have installed MSDE and SQL Server 2K client on my winXP Pro it was working fine but when i install SP2 , i m un able to connect to SQL Server from my IDE or code even tough i can run manager or other services of it.
when i gooogles i found that SP2 restricts the acccess to SQL Server due to its security problems. so i tried to open the ports but all in vain
i tried to remove XP2 but when i start run the uninstaller it raises some error and stop the uninstallation. so can any one help me how to connect to SQL server living in the boundary of SP2 and its firewall.
