[prismaTS] Accidentally uninstall SQL Server

[prismaTS] Accidentally uninstall SQL Server
Hi Apnea Board,

I've been using prismaTS 5.0.7 without problem. But after a while I haven't used it as often. Then one day, as I'm cleaning up my computer. I come across MS SQL server in the add/remove program. At that time, I believe maybe it was from me dabbling in development tutorial or was bundled install from Visual Studio, so I uninstall it. Months later when I want to open up prismaTS it can't connect to database now. Thing is, I can't uninstall prismaTS (and then reinstall it later) either because of the uninstaller also looking for DB. Have tried install SQL Server that's not bundled and not working right out of the box, so I guess maybe it need the right config or schema that I don't know. This makes me kinda stuck in the loop with unusable prismaTS. I wonder if anybody else ever run into this problem?

Thank you,
Rud

I'm not a Windows expert, but instead of using the uninstall option, have you tried to re-run the prismaTS installer over top of your existing installation?

It probably left your data when it un-installed SQL Server and if you re-install it might just work again.

Download and install SQL Express and give it a try, it’s free.

Is there a configuration section in your program where you enter the database connection info?

@SuperSleeper running the installer seems to go straight to uninstalling.

@FaceInTheCrowd Yeah found that there's still data left in the SQL Server directory. Re-installed it but the connection from prisma is still failing. I'm not sure about the configuration detail would be the same though.

Ya, the user name and password used to create the data you have won't be the same as the username and password from a new install of SQL Server.

I'll post more if I think of a way out of this.
