Done and Dusted! The Bootcamp and What’s Next

After months of preparing, the Global Azure Bootcamp in Malta came to an end! We had lots of fun, our audience was great, and very receptive with lots of questions which we were eager to answer. This year we started with some music, getting the audience in the mood, an idea proposed by Mary from Microsoft, who always gives a helping hand with our events.

Then the event kicked off! First with the IoT Fundamentals session which I delivered myself, talking about the IoT features available in Azure, followed by a live demo using the MxChip. Next up was Evan Camilleri, delivering a great presentation about Elastic Pools on how to scale multiple SQL databases. Johan Zammit amazed the crowd with Blockchain giving a demo with Etherium, whilst Matthew Grech impressed the audience with Machine Learning even showing deployment models. Ralph Attard wrapped up the day showing his remarkable skills in SQL Server, even updating us on GDPR.

Error 29506 | SQL Server 2005 Management Studio Express

When i binged (yes I’m using bing :P), i found the following fix:

  • Search for Command Prompt in the Start Window (don’t press enter)
  • Right click on the shortcut found and select ‘Run as Administrator’
  • In the command prompt change the current directory to the folder where the SSMSEE installer is stored
  • Enter the following command .SQLServer2005_SSMSEE_x64.msi if you are running Windows 7/Vista 64 bit
  • Enter the following command .SQLServer2005_SSMSEE.msi if you are running Windows 7/Vista 32 bit
  • Press enter to start the installation

Happy Sql Server Managementing 🙂
