    Having problems setting up SQL Server 2005 Express Edition

    Hi all,

    Iv downloaded the SQL Server 2005 Express Edition and then installed the program but now Im stuck, basically iv been folowing a book and it makes it sound like you simply put your windows name in with SQLEXPRESS into the servername field and it should work but instead i get this message

    I really hope someone can help me out because im desperate to start my studies.

    I guess you need to start a SQl Server up before you try to connect to it.
