Can't connect to SQL server 2000 in local PC
I have problem with SQL server running on my PC. After installing SQL 2000 in my local machine then I used Menu Enterprise Manager to register using menu New SQL server Registration and SQL Server Wizard . I Used Window Authentication to connect to my local SQL Server but the error message prompts me with :
"SQL server does not exist or access denied "
Did I miss some other procedure before I could register and connect to my local instance in my own PC localhost ?
Thank you for any replies.
