Installation Support FAQ

Why doesn't Aligned Elements find my SQL Server on the network?

Type the server and instance name manually in the server combo box (e.g. <MyServerName>\SQLEXPRESS) and press return (Note! Observe that the slash is a backslash, not a front slash!). If you now cannot get connected to your server, the problem might lie in firewall settings on either the client or the server side.

See the AE User Manual for details.
