SQL Server Install Workaround

  1. This workaround should be used only if during the DEXIS server install process an error message pops up that says “Cannot start the SQL Service” which then cancels the install (happens on 64-bit servers)
  2. Go to the main DEXIS folder
  3. Click the “Common” folder
  4. Click “Software” folder
  5. Click “msse2005.exe”
  6. Follow the steps until there’s an option to check the box “SQL Browser”
  7. Input your own password
  8. Complete the SQL Server installation
  9. Install Dexis as normal, but instead of choosing a New Instance of SQL Server, choose Existing and make sure it is [local](*name of sql server*)
  10. Finish DEXIS installation
