The SQL create script works for Express but we do not support configuring SQL Express.


There are a few things you have to check\enable if you are facing database connectivity issues;

  • Validate server name. Mayby it’s “pc-name\server” or “server\SQLEXPRESS”. 
  • Enable protocol tcp\ip. 
  • Enable sqlbrowser. 
  • Make sure that sqlbrowser is running under services. 
  • sql browser has to be forwarded in the firewall. 
  • Enable sqlserv.exe instance in the firewall.
