I had installed
SQL Server 2000 on my
Windows 8. But the
SQL Server cannot start. When I try to start the server I get this error:
The specified service does not exists as an installed service
Have you any idea?
Have you checked this out?
It looks like the SQL service may fail in instances where the server name (your Windows 8 computer name) contains all lowercase characters, or a mixture of lower and uppercase.
