Simple lesson learned

KISS (Keep it stupid simple) :-)"System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (PreLoginHandshake()).]General network error. Check your network documentation." - that was the wife having an issue.I told her: okay, do you have SQLNCLI? Obviously, she had it installed.Me: well then, check here: turned out that SQL Browser service was not started. Again, KISS or be KISS-ed.
