Installations are often blocked by firewall ports, incorrect server name, or a default SQL instance that has already been created. So if you're dealing with SOLIDWORKS Electrical installation errors or connecting to the SQL Express, check that these common errors are not causing problems.
A firewall is an essential barrier to block unwanted communication to your company’s network. It can also cause problems during program installations if the correct firewall ports are not open.
Firewall ports 1433 and 26666 must be open for SOLIDWORKS Electrical to communicate with the SQL and collaborative server. To check if the ports are open, run a telnet test.
If installing a new SOLIDWORKS Electrical database, occasionally a database of the same name is already installed, or if a previous installation fails, the default SQL database has already been created.
There are two possible solutions.
When installing SOLIDWORKS Electrical, it is important to use your computer name instead of the default “localhost”. Change from “localhost”, to your computer name in the Collaborative Server and SQL Server names.
