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.
