MSDE LinksSQL install
Someone please help me! Getting LinksSQL to talk to my MSDE database is becoming a pain in the ass! During the installation when it askes for the database settings, all I get is the following error...

Error: Could not connect to database. Reason:

and thats not very useful! I've tried all kinds of combinations, and I know that the DB is there and working because I can connect to it with other applications. I'm sure that I have the latest Perl modules installed, and the correct ones. If anyone has any ideas on this please throw them my way as I realy realy need to finish this today.

Thanks for your time!

You tried entering a domain for the host, instead of localhost?

This usually happens when DBI or DBD is not installed correctly. From command prompt, try:

perl -e "DBI->connect('DBI:ODBC:yourdsn', 'user', 'pass')"

and see if it connects ok. If you are still having problems, send an email to support and we can take a look for you.
