Our local tech guys decided that everyone's computer needs to conform to a new naming convention. When they renamed my machine, they invalidated my MSDE 7 installation and my results repository. I've monkey'd around with this enough to make things worse.
Anyway, right now, I have MSDE 8 installed and running, but I don't know how to get my old repository running in it. I've tried copying the files, but get 'Invalid Database' when I try to access it.
I've even installed MSDE 7 again, but still get the same error. I'd rather not lose all of my data. Is there any help?
Re: MSDE Corrupted?
I finally got my MSDE back. I apparently hadn't reinstalled MSDE 7 in the same directory as before.
Either way, how would I go about upgrading to MSDE 8 if I wanted to? It seems that they are not compatible from my recent experience.
