Additional Comments

In order to get a running install, use the following steps: - unpack the self-extracting archive - run the installer: wine setup.exe DISABLEROLLBACK=1 BLANKSAPWD=1 DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0 SECURITYMODE=SQL - installer will report an error, but will keep the service installed - move all files from c:\users\{username}\Temp\SqlSetup\Temp to c:\windows\system32 After that the server starts as soon as you start any other appliaction in wine. I recommend the following: wine "C:/Program Files/Microsoft SQL Server/80/Tools/Binn/sqlmangr.exe" Service is accessible on localhost:1433, user sa, empty password.
