When I launch Outlook 2007 I am suddenly recieving the following message:

Cannot connect to the local SQL server service (the Business Contact Manager

database service) is not running. You can connect to a BCM that is stored on

a different computer. For more information on starting the SQL service click

help.

When I cllick help the create or select a BCM database screen appears with

my computer name and no database name. Then a message appears that it cannot

access the database on my computer.

If I go to the SQL Configuration manager the server has a red light and it's

state is stopped. If I tried to start it the error message says: The request

failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event

log or other applicatable error logs for details.

I have tried loging in as administrator and any other way that I can think

of. The database is definately on this computer. I am running Vista and think

this started right after a windows update.

Any help will be appreciated,

DNC

It's possible that the Windows Update changed some permissions that

prevent Sql from accessing some resource.

I think this has been discussed in tha past, so you could try

searching this newsgroup.

Or search the sql and windows event logs for details on why BCM's sql

service won't start.
