PI MDB to AF preparation wizard problems

Hi all,

 

Need some urgent help. I'm trying to upgrade my PI server to 2012 but I'm stuck at the PI MDB to AF preparation wizard stage.

 

I've installed SQL Express 2005 (I couldn't do 2008 as the windows installer was at the wrong revision), and installed PI-AF.

 

When I run the PI MDB to AF preparation wizard it asks for the AF server; I have selected my current PI server as it's the only one I have. When it tries to connect I get an error message saying that it can't connect to the SQL database. What am I doing wrong!?!?

 

I would normally try tech support but I thought this might be something simple to fix.
