Question / Problem
During the installation of the MSDE2000 engine, the install program tries to download the engine from the internet over and over again although the MSDE engine runs already. A direct selection of the SQL server doesn’t help, as the installer still tries to download the system from the internet.
Answer / Solution
If the MSDE is installedand running, you just have to set up the MSDE as database connection forSpaceObServer by selecting "MS SQL Server" under Views / Options / Database.
