Non-Latin Database Instance Installation Guide
The default installation uses "Latin1_General_CS_AS" as the default collation of the database. In case you want to run a different collation, please setup a database instance "ADOXX15EN" with your desired collation in advance!
This installation guide is applicable in case you want to use a different collation then the default "Latin1_General_CS_AS" for your installation.
| Database Installation/Preparation: |
The database installation is based on Microsoft's SQL Express 2008 Engine. The installation file is included in the package of ADOxx. Alternatively the database engine can be directly downloaded from Microsoft' website (e.g. Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express)
HINT: The usage of the distributed package is recommended for issue tracking reasons.
- Navigate to "SQLExpress" folder:
The SQL Express installation files can be found in the folder "<ADOXX_PACKAGE>\SQLExpress [Windows Vista, Windows 7]"
