Default MSDE

I need help getting MSDE to work in order to do the examples in chapter 16. Ive installed MSDE but I cant seem to get it to work. the following is what i did to install it which might help you determein my problem.

I downloaded "MSDE 2000 for Developers Using Visual Studio .NET" from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en and followed the instructions on how to install it at the bottom. After i installed i restarted my computer and after restarting SQL Server Service Manager apperared in my system tray. But there were no services in the list of services and no servers in the list of servers. what do i need to do now??

Installation problems are very difficult to troubleshoot as there are so many variations that can affect the installation process. I would suggest that you contact Microsoft for assistance with this. Another alternative is to do a search on Google for 'msde installation problems'. There are a lot of other people out there who have run into similar problems and you are likely to find a wealth of information there.
