How to manually install an SQL database

BullGuard internet security

BullGuard blocks the installation of SQL Server 2014. Uninstall BullGuard before installing SQL Server 2014 (turning off BullGuard temporarily won’t do). Contact BullGuard for more information/other solutions.

  • Download SQL Server 2014 from the Microsoft website. Choose between 32 and 64 bit.
  • Run the installer.
    • Extract the setup in the suggested folder.
    • Select ‘New SQL Server stand-alone’.
    • Select ‘Perform a new installation of SQL Server 2014’ and click ‘Next’.
    • Accept the license terms and click ‘Next’.
    • Leave everything on default and click ‘Next’.
    • Change the name of the instance. Make it ‘SQLEXPRESS14BS’. The ‘BS’ is short for Buildsoft. Click ‘Next’.
    • Make sure the Startup Type is set to ‘Automatic’. Click ‘Next’.
    • Leave everything on default and click ‘Next’.
    • The installation will now start. This can take a while. When finished the status should be ‘Succeeded’.
