Problem installing SW2018 - Solidworks Electrical unable to connect to SQL Server

Question asked by Robert Ritchie on Jan 8, 2019



I am receiving the follow error when attempting to install SW 2018 on my home computer (Windows 7):


SOLIDWORKS Electrical is unable to connect to the SQL Server.

Possible reasons for this failure:

- Incorrect username or password

- Incorrect server name

- Server is unavailable

Please Check the SQL server settings under the SOLIDWORKS Electrical options.


The installation does not proceed past this point.


Anybody else having the same problem?


Thank you!
