So I bought Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and have been trying to get it set up, but it always seems like any instructions is missing a critical component. For instance:
Create Service Accounts
- click start, right-click My Computer, and select Manage
- Expand Local Users and Groups, and select Users
I don't have anything saying "local users and groups! I've googled a dozen different "instructions" and "step-by-step guides" which are long on describing what the stupid program does, but very short on telling me how to set it up.
Here's a screenshot taken in Windows 8 but it should be the same for older versions as well.
There is another way to get to this window:
Press + R
