Seems not an unfamilar story. Having installed (apparently successfully) I attached to our SQL Server (2000) and selected a database. I was presented with a couple of MS Backups to include following which I sat patiently with the "Analyse..." dialogue for several minutes until it timed out (I did this many, many times). I have trawled through all the FAQ and forum. I have checked that I have correct permissions, made sure the extended procedure is safely installed in the 'master' database, all to no avail. What is worrying is that 'sqlserv.exe' starts gobbling up shed loads of CPU time which persists even after the client progam is exited. This only resolves by stopping and restarting the SQL Server. The feature set in this software is extremely enticing and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Can any of you gurus throw some light on this, please?
