Hi all,
I just have my new  Window 7 and new Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express installed (by our Computer Team) in my PC that is part of Microsoft NT 4 LAN System.  I have no ideas where Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express is installed - I clicked on "Start" of  my PC => Microsoft SQL Server 2012 has (i) Import and Export Data (64-bit) and (ii) Configuration Tools. If I open a mxd Map from ArcMap 10.0 and then click on ArcCatalog 10.0, I see and click on Database Servers: Add Dsatabase Servers, I get the "Add Database Server" dialog box - see the attached file. I have no ideas how to connect my new Microsoft SQL server 2012 Express to the Data Server of ArcGIS 10.0/ArcCatalog 10.0.  Please kindly help and tell me how I can get my new  Microsoft SQL server 2012 Express to the Data Server of ArcGIS 10.0/ArcCatalog 10.0.
Thanks,
Scott Chang
