Jump to solution

I have installed SQL server 2014 on my computer. Howerver when I run QAInspect after installation I keep getting  the message " SQL Server Express Is Not Installed".  Can anyone help me with solution/advice on how to fix this?

 

 

Thanks,

First off, SQL 2014 is not supported for use with QAInspect, only 2008 and 2005 editions.  Assuming you have the last release of version 9.20, these are the supported databases.

 

• Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition 2008 R2 SP1 (10 GB scan database limit)
• Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition 2008 SP3 (4 GB scan database limit)
• Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition 2005 SP4 (minimum) (4 GB scan database limit)
• Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (Recommended) (No scan database limit)
• Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP2 (No scan database limit)
• Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP4 (No scan database limit)

 

Page 78 of the QAInspect 9.20 User Guide (attached) details where to change the Database settings under the Application Settings menu.  By default QAInspect (and WebInspect) will seek a local instance of SQL Express, but the user can alter that using these settings so that QAInspect stores its scan and report data on a SQL Server, local or remote.

 

Further information may be found in our customer forums at Protect724, as well as the Fortify Documentation repository at https://protect724.hp.com/community/fortify/fortify-product-documentation/overview

 

 

BTW - QAInspect is no longer being sold (End of Life), but it is currently supported.  QAInspect customers are encouraged to contact Fortify Support (support.fortify.com), and our Product Management team, for a replacement using WebInspect.

Thanks a lot. Yes it's true QAInspect is no longer being sold. I already installed WebInspect instead.
