SQL Server 2005 Express via ODBC?

Need to run SQL Express within applications other than those supporting .NET?

Well, I needed to get my database schema to Visio, yet none of the connectors would work. By default, Express doesn’t talk via TCP or NP and its default listeners won’t accept older interfaces..so you need to manually enable these to get Express working via ODBC connectors:

1. Open the SQL Computer Manager
2. Navigate to “Server Network Configuration”
3. Navigate to “Protocols for “SQLEXPRESS” (or whatever your running instance is called)
4. Enable NP and TCP
5. Restart SQL Express

And, Bob is your uncle! :)
