In particular, MSXML 6 would fail and the log would have a message similar to: MSI (s) (40:58) [22:16:00:859]: MainEngineThread is returning 1605 ......

Automating SQL Server 2000 based database generation with OSQL in .NET
This week I had a need for NUnit based unit testing against a class that depended on a provided SqlConnection. Up to this point I had been able to mock external objects and their behavior based on interfaces, but with a SqlConnection I could not mock. There are some options for mocking the SqlConnection such as TypeMock, but I needed a realistic connection to test against. This also proved as a good method for building the expected DB interface. The solution that worked best for my environment (only ......

Changing OpenSim’s User Database to MSSQL
Here we are at the second week's task for the Manhattan Project: switching the user's database to MSSQL instead of SQLite. I'll be honest, there weren't any valuable resources I found for assistance in the creation of this tutorial. Mostly it was a combination of Try / Fail and guessing based on what I saw in the code for the MSSQL dll in the project. I might say that there weren't resources, but what I mostly mean is no tutorial. There are some .sql files to help get the database started, but that's ......
