  • jcjks,

    Have you tried installing your drivers in compatibility mode?

    You can do this by following the below instructions:

    ·         Enter the Start screen

    ·         Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section

    ·         Select Search

    ·         Type Compatibility

    ·         Click Settings in the right column

    ·         Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    ·         Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver.

    Please post back with your results.

    Thanks,


    Chris

  • Hi jcjks,

    Microsoft is aware of this issue.  SQL 2005 is not compatible on Windows 8, the only solution that I know of is to use SQL 2008 or later.
