Total SQL Analyzer Pro uses Microsoft
SQL Distributed Management Objects (DMO) to interact with SQL
Server. Since we recommend that you install Total SQL Analyzer Pro
on a computer other than your SQL Server computer, this means that
you need the required components on the client computer where you
wish to install Total SQL Analyzer Pro.
For more information on choosing the
optimal client computer for Total SQL Analyzer Pro, see
Installing the Trial.
Step 1: Determine where you will install
Total SQL Analyzer Pro
Before you install Total SQL Analyzer
Pro, take a moment to determine the best place for the program to
run. To do this, follow these guidelines:
Since you typically do not want to install any client software
on the same system that hosts your Microsoft SQL Server
database, it is important that you do not install Total SQL
Analyzer Pro on your SQL Server Database system. Running client
software on your server machine would detrimentally affect SQL
Server performance. Install Total SQL Analyzer Pro on a client
If you want to use Total SQL Analyzer Pro to document SQL Server
2000 systems, do not install Total SQL Analyzer Pro on a
computer that has SQL Server 7 client tools or SQL-DMO 7
installed. If you install Total SQL Analyzer Pro on a computer
that has SQL Server 7 client tools, Total SQL Analyzer Pro will
use the existing SQL-DMO 7 object library, which is not capable
of accessing SQL Server 2000 systems.
If you choose a computer that already has SQL Server 2000 client
tools installed, the Total SQL Analyzer Pro setup program will
update your SQL-DMO components to Service Pack 1. This is
necessary because of numerous issues related to the original
shipping version of SQL-DMO 2000. The Service Pack 1 software
has been certified by Microsoft to be fully backward compatible
with the original shipping version. If your computer is relying
on the original shipping version of SQL-DMO 2000, however, you
may want to consider installing Total SQL Analyzer Pro on a
If you choose a computer that does not have SQL Server 2000 or
SQL Server 7 client tools installed, you will need to install
Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.6 or later.
This software is not included with Total SQL Analyzer Pro, but
is freely available from the Microsoft Download site. In this
configuration, be sure to install MDAC 2.6 or later before
you install Total SQL Analyzer Pro. After installing, you will
be able to document both SQL Server 7 and SQL Server 2000
You can download MDAC 2.6 from the
Microsoft Data Access Download Site free of charge.
Step 2 - Close all Programs
Before running Total SQL Analyzer Pro
setup, please close any other running programs, including virus
scanners, disk utilities, and programs in your Windows Start folder.
