Installing SQL Server

NOTE: DonorHub Lite now uses a wizard to automate the installation of SQL Server 2005 Express.

This guide will help you properly install SQL Server 2005 Express onto your computer. SQL Server 2005 Express is made available by Microsoft for no cost. However in some deployment models, a commercial edition of SQL Server 2005 must be used. Check the System Requirements to learn more.

Note: It is recommended that you install SQL Server 2005 and DonorHub Lite onto the same computer. However, you may install SQL Server 2005 and DonorHub Lite onto separate computers. But you will have to enable "remote connections" using the "SQL Server Surface Area Configuration" tool. Also, you will have to install the "Connectivity Tools" component of SQL Server 2005 onto each client where DonorHub Lite is installed.

1.Download and Install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express

a. Include all "Database Services" including "Replication", and include "Connectivity Components".

 

b. Choose "Mixed Mode" for authentication, and remember the password you provide.

Note: "Mixed Mode" authentication is not necessarily required. DonorHub Lite supports SQL Server with "Windows Authentication Mode Only" as long as DonorHub Lite and the instance of SQL Server you wish to work with are running on the same computer. Also you must run DonorHub Lite with an NT account that has "sysadmin" privileges in SQL Server. Hint: You may right-click on DonorHub Lite and "Run as..." in order to use the desired NT user account.

Optional: Download and Install Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express.

@tsanyao, I'd agree.  And I"d add that SQL Server 2012 Express SP4 is currently the best edition of SQL Server for running TntMPD.DataServer (and DonorWise).  Too bad SQL 2014 is not yet an option, as it has some great Azure integration.
