Lansweeper data, reports and settings are stored in a database, which is hosted in either SQL Compact or SQL Server. If you install Lansweeper under SQL Server, by performing an Advanced Install, and the connection to your SQL Server installation is lost at some point, you may encounter errors like the ones below.
The errors below indicate that Lansweeper is unable to locate the SQL Server instance hosting your Lansweeper database. It's important to note that this does not point to database corruption or an issue with the database itself. Though there are many possible causes for a loss of SQL connectivity, below are some troubleshooting steps you can try to resolve the issue.
