If you are trying to use SQLserver with InfoCaptor and are using the SQL Studio Express 2005 then you might encounter connection refused error

Please try the following setup before attempting to connect

open the Configuration Manager
Start -> Microsoft SQL Server 2005 -> Configuration Tools -> SQL Server Configuration Manager


2. Then at the left hand tree. Select SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration-> Protocol for SQLEXPRESS-> TCP/IP


3. Right click and enable it.


4. A window box appear on double click the TCP/IP. Click on the “IP Addresses” Tab


5. Set the TCP Port value to 1433 then click apply

6. Then at the left hand tree. Select SQL Server 2005 Services -> SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) -> right click and restart.



Now go back to InfoCaptor connection wizard and enter the connection details



Where “rudrasoft” is the PC name where SQL server is installed. So use the appropriate name for your installation

If you go to your SQL Server Studio, you will see the name before the backslash



The port is 1433 which we entered in the TCP/IP port settings

and the database is “Adventureworks”

Data Visualizer and Dashboard Application
This is the best dashboard software for its price. One good thing we did was to hire their consulting services to build few dashboard prototypes and provide some quick dashboard training.

We evaluated Xcelsius and Qlikview and the cost for organization to implement dashboards was quoted over 10,000 USD. For fraction of the above quoted price, we were able to buy the licenses for the web based dashboard software and get some free training. This is truly a dashboard software for small businesses like us.
