    MSDE 2000 sa password for Showcenter 200?

    WinXP: Starting Pinnacle Systems Media Service I get following error in Windows Event Viewer

    Service cannot be started. PinnacleSys.MediaServer.MediaServerException: SQL Server User / Password Error ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Login failed for user 'sa'.

    Tried changing password of the sa account (MSDE 2000 = Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine).

    Pinacle Showcenter 200 problems started installing MS SQL Server 2008 on the laptop. After installation the Pinnacle Showcenter 200 software did not work anymore. Opening a video file hitting Play button generated a black screen and returned to the main menu.

    Uninstalled SQL Server 2008.

    Installed SQL Server Desktop Engine 2000 manually


    Starting Pinnacle Systems Media Service

    osql -U sa -S <server_name>\pinnaclesys




    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\PINNACLESYS\MSSQLServer

    Loginmode = 0

    Tried changing Loginmode to 1 and 2 ---> still the same error

    Any advice how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Solution: Remove all Pinnacle and SQL Server files and related registry items

    Reinstall PinnacleSchowcenter software: autorun.exe on CD-ROM (media server including MSDE 2000 is installed automatically)

    MSDE 2000 installation



    TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files\Pinnacle\MediaServer\Microsoft SQL Server\"
    DATADIR="C:\Program Files\Pinnacle\MediaServer\Microsoft SQL Server\"
