Hello

Windows XP Pro SP3, KIS 11, Across standalone v5

Across stopped working with this error message

Errore non specificato. [Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server] Cannot open database "across" requested by the login. The login failed. [hr=-2147467259]
Error: [4060] 0x80004005. Cannot open database "across" requested by the login. The login failed. [42000]

I suspect one of last Windows patches or a KIS updates, but disabling KIS doesn't work

even the Across SP1 wasn't able to fix it

I'm becoming to be angry with this tool (that luckily for me only 1 agency wants)

just found the culprit ! Oct 10, 2010

and used an old Across support advice:
Windows Disc-Clean-Up has compressed the database files. If the databases are compressed you cannot use them anymore before you have not decompressed them. The databases can be found by default under C:/Program Files/Microsoft SQL Server/MSSQL.1/MSSQL/Data. You can detect if the files are compressed if the files are shown in blue color. You can decompress the files via right-click>>Properties>>Advanced.

anyway, I can't understand why programmers cannot get rid of this issues, as one cannot remember all this things, and under pressure of a deadline this accident can be a nightmare ...
(not the case this time
