SQL Server :: Management Studio 2008 - Download And Use R2 Client
Feb 3, 2011
I have the developers edition of sql server 2008 on my local machine (I have an msdn subscription). I would like to download and use r2 client, which I understand is superior to the standard client) but not the express database. Do I want the "SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with Management Tools " (doesnt sound like what I want) or the "SQL Server 2008 R2 Management Studio Express" (does sound like what I want, and is about 100M smaller, so I assume doesnt load the database). Of course I am assuming that the r2 client connects with no problems to a non-r2 database.
We use SQL Server 2005 and 2008 here at my workplace. In the past, whenever we setup a new developer workstation we would install Visual Studio, then install Management Studio by downloading the SQL Server trial, and installing only the tools. The tools (in the past) were setup so you could use them indefinitely, it was only the database engine itself that was time-limited.
With SQL Server 2008 that has apparently changed. I tried to start Management Studio 2008 on my workstation today, and got an error stating that "evaluation period has expired." I'm assuming we built this workstation the same as all the previous ones we've built, but now that I'm thinking about it I'm wondering if possible Management Studio was installed along with Visual Studio... is that possible? At any rate, my question is--how do we properly install Management Studio so that it won't "expire"? We don't need to install the database engine, we just want to install Management Studio.
I just installed SQL Server 2008 Management studio Express on my Vista machine.i tried connecting to local machine using :
.sqlexpress, (local)sqlexpress, or .SQLExpress, MyPCNAMESQLExpress
nothing is working, getting this error:
----------------------------- Cannot connect to PC-NAMESQLEXPRESS. A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified) ----------------------------
I have recently upgraded to SQL Management Studio 2008. The first thing I noticed is it wouldn't allow me to save changes to my table structure at all. I fixed this by disabling "Prevent Saving Changes that requre table re-creation" under Tools..Options...Designers...Table and Database Designers. Now it lets me save. However, if I rename a column in a table that has data in it, I get a warning telling me my data will be lost since the old column will be gone and the new column has no data in it. Since when does renaming a column require a table to be recreated? Is this some sort of setting in SQL Management Studio? If I can't don things like rename clolumns (even change column data types) without losing all my data, then what is the point of using SQL management studio?
I restored a database from another server, and everything looks good except the users.
I'm managing all this from SQL Server 2008 Management Studio as SA.
The users are present in the [u]databaseName > security > users[/u] section, and they exist in [u]databaseServer > Security > Logins[/u]. However I can't change anything in the [u]databaseName > security > users[/u] section, because when I try and make a change, and then I hit OK to apply, it says "[i]login name must be specified[b][/b][/i]". But the login name field is grayed out and I can't modify it(even though I'm logged into the machine as Administrator and SQL as SA).
Also, in the user mapping section, when I try to map one of the users to a database, it says '[i]create failed user already exists[b][/b][/i]'...but I don't want to create the user, I just want to map that user to the appropriate databases...
I've just downloaded SQL Server Management Studio 2008 after using SSMS 2005 for the past years, however the intellisense isn't working in the Query-Builder. I've checked, and Intellisense is enabled. Is there any other reason this could not be working?
I usually use WebMatrix to manage my database (sdf file). I wonder if it can be possible to manage this database with SQL Management Studio 2008? When I try to open it with SQL Management Studio 2008 I get the error:
Incompatible database version. What's wrong?
BUT When I create a new sdf database with SQL Management Studio 2008, I have no problem for open it again with SQL Management Studio 2008 but if I try to open it with WebMatrix it doesn't work...(server not found?)
I sucessfully installed SQL Server Express 2010 on my windows server. I then tried to install the SQL Server 2008 management studio via Web Platform Installer but it failed (it did however sucessfully install powershell).
Using the Web Platform installer, in installed both the Visual Web Developer Express 2008 and SQL Server Management Studio Express 2008. Next, I connected to my local SQL Server Express 2008 and created a simple database and table using Visual Web Developer Express 2008 where the database file resided in the app data folder of my website. I can connect and explore the table from both Visual Web Developer 2008 as well as the full blown version of Visual Studio 2008.
is there any difference between sql express and sql client. Actually I have been told to install a sql client using which i will connect to the sql server installed remotely. Also I have sql express edition 2008 installed on my machine. So is it the same. Will I be able to connect to the sql server using the sql server express edition.?
I'm trying to do the following in ASP.NET (with c#):
1. On page Load, download an XML file from a different website to the IIS server, in a subdirectory of the application directory called "downloadedFiles"
I know that WebClient.DownloadFile() can download a file, but this only seems to download the file to the client's machine. I am interested in downloading it to the actual IIS server (so that it can be utilized throughout the lifetime of more than one session). Does anyone know how this could be performed?
Specifically, I'm trying to download an XML file from a website (as an example: [URL]) . How could I download that XML file onto my actual IIS server?
How do i download a file from server to the client pc using asp.net, im using c# with vs 2005. I have tried with WebCient but it is downloading on the server itself. I want to download a particular file to the client PC.
Would something be missing, not working, or confusing if I do this? First, install SQL Server 2008 Standard, and SP1. Then, install Visual Studio 2010 Professional, unchecking SQL Server 2008 Express option. Or would I need to fix any configurations afterwards?
Ive downloaded the asp.net framework from the "getting started" section twice today. Once on my PC which has windows 7 and once on my laptop which has vista. Both ended up with the same problem.
Once it is all downloaded I go to the "sql server installation centre" in my programs list and then select the "new installation" link at the top, I am asked to "Browse for SQL server installation media." I have tried to browse for this but cannot find it anywhere. its an error with windows 7 and to try and download visual studio which has all the componants needed for SQL Server to run. I tried this and hit the same wall. I have spent all day tring to find a solution for this but to no avail. I find it very confusing when reading up on exactly what I need to download. I am a PHP developer and have never done anything with ASP before. I just want a quick and simple solution to be able to get my website & database up and running. I have a .bak file that I need to import into the database which I would have thought would be very straight forward?!?

But, If I don't delete that file on server then my server will full by time.Whether any way to download from FileStream Or something the same?
Or any body have an other way to after Client Download then Server delete fileExcel?
I have instance of MS SQL Server 2005 on my computer. Is there any way to install SSMSE (Management Studio) 2008 to work with instance of MS SQL Server 2005? Operational System of my computer: Windows XP with 32 bit, processor 1.67 GHz.
Assume a simple aspx data entry page in which admin user can upload an image as well as some other data. They are stored in database and the next time admin visits that page to edit record, image data fetched and a preview generated and saved to disk (using GDI+) and the preview is shown in an image control.
This procedure works fine for the first time however if the image changes (a new one uploaded) the next time the page is surfed it shows previously uploaded image. I debugged the application and everything works correct. The new image data is in database and new preview is stored in Temp location however the page shows previous one. If I refresh the page it shows the new image preview. I should mention that preview is always saved to disk with one name (id of each record as the name).
I think that is because of IE and other browsers use client cache instead of loading images each time a page is surfed. I wonder if there is a way to force the client browser to refresh itself so the newly uploaded image is shown without user intervention.
I am using the code below to enable clients to download a .csv file from my server.
The problem I am having is that when the file is saved to the client computer the file name is prefixed and suffixed with an underscore which leads to a file type of .csv_ which is obviously not a recognised file type.
How can I strip the underscores from the file name at the transmit stage?
Dim FileName As String = LstBox1.SelectedItem.ToString Dim FilePath As String = "~/temp" & FileName Response.Clear() Response.ContentType = "text/csv" Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" & FileName & "") Response.TransmitFile(FilePath) Response.End()
