I have installed a second application that uses msde (ms sql server 2000) but during installation the installer found an existing msde db. when I try to use the 2nd application, it tries to log on using a different password, unsuccessfully. Does anyone know how to create a seperate msde instance that i can use? I think this is done using OSQL but I am not sure which commands to use. MS support site is not helpful. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When you install MSDE 2000 and there is a instance already created the machine configures the new one as an instance running on seperate ports. I would check that you do have two installed versions of msde in add remove programs.

Did you have any errors during install?
