problem installing SQLConsole

problem installing SQLConsole

I had SQLConsole (7.6) installed on my previous desktop computer (Win98) but the computer was replaced & the OS is Windows 2000 Pro and now I can't figure out how to install SQLConsole.  I tried following the wizard but must have screwed up some of my choices because it won't contact the database on my server.  I do the install but can't figure out this part.  I get a message saying, "Would you like to create a local SQLConsole database?"  I say OK.  Another box appears called Create SQLConsole database.  This has: Local server name: server1  and password:_________.   Yes  No.  I choose Yes.  Next, a message saying "Connecting to the SQLConsole Repository"  and then "Could not connect to SQLConsole Database." Is the local server name supposed to be my PC name or a made up name or what?  How do I create that local database on my PC?  I could find no references to the "SQLConsole Repository" any place in the manual or the help.  What is it?
I want to set up database maintenance from my desktop instead of going to SQLTalk on the server?  (I want the backups to go to my desktop hard drive.)
Please help.  

RE: problem installing SQLConsole

I have encountered this error before.  In the SQL.INI file, remove the "DBNAME=" lines from the [dbnt1sv] section.  Save it and try again.  This should fix the problem without re-installing SQLConsole.
