BCM Database creation fails


G

Guest

I am trying to install BCM 2003 on Outlook 2003 on a new profile. I get a
"database creation failed" error when I try to create a new bcm database on
msde. I have administrator rights. BCM can connect to the database and the
database is running. when I create a database with the same name I type in
for the new database, I get a database exists error. so there is a problem
during creation of the database.

Any ideas? Can it have something to do with Regional settings etc.?

Hi Onur

What happens if you try creating a Database with a different name?
Can you provide more information regarding the Regional Settings?

Hi Larry,

It is probably a bug. I searched the internet and the same question is asked
by Turkish people only.

I use Outlook 2003 English, Regional settings set to Turkish. I would like
to install BCM English. When msde installs, the collation is created with
Turkish_CI_AS. BCM English cannot create the database with this collation.

For a workaround, after the BCM and built-in msde installation, i uninstall
msde, reinstall it from the command prompt with collation set to
Latin1_General_CI_AS and then the database is created.

setup.exe SAPWD="AStrongSAPassword" INSTANCENAME="MICROSOFTSMLBIZ"
COLLATION="LATIN1_GENERAL_CI_AS" /L*v C:\MSDELog.log

The steps for the workaround cannot be found at my blog.

If you are in BCM team and would like to contact me, you can find me on the
GAL.

Hi Onur

I sent you a reply. You can also try the following steps

1. Uninstall BCM
2. Uninstall Microsoft SQL Desktop Engine (MICROSOFTSMLBIZ)

3. Change the regional settings to English-US (on all tabs in Regional
Control Panel)

4. Reinstall BCM. Try creating a new Database

5. Switch the Regional Settings back to Turkish


Hope this helps!
