In setting up the InfoPath forms Server, sick I successfully installed the SharePoint services application. I then installed and started to configure the InfoPath forms server. I got to the 8th step and it eventually time out stating that it could not connect to the Microsoft##SSEE database, vcialis 40mg that I needed to make sure that remote connections were enabled.

I went to this KB article and configured the SSEE database for remote connections. I was still getting the error on configuration.

What I ended up realizing was that the SSEE database is an orphaned database that should not be installed. I then needed to uninstall the database and re-configure the forms server. Here are the steps to uninstall the Microsoft##SSEE database:

  1. In the registry browse to this location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall
  2. Click on each of the sub folders {GUID} on the left hand column and look at the display name on the right until you see “Microsoft SQL 2005 embedded Edition…”
  3. Copy the value that is stored as the UninstallString (for example:  MsiExec.exe /X{0F51A262-1ADF-4914-B448-78AC58C4178A})
  4. Open up a command prompt and paste the value and add to the end of the string ” CALLERID=OCSETUP.EXE”
  5. Example  c:TempMsiExec.exe /X{0F51A262-1ADF-4914-B448-78AC58C4178A} CALLERID=OCSETUP.EXE
