Hi,

I am using SQLRTGetServers() method to get the list of installed SQL Server instances and then this list I initialised to the dropdown box.It is working fine on32 bit OS but same thing when I install on 64 bit OS it fails to give me the list of SQL instances.Does SQLRTGetServers() method only work on32 bit OS.

I am not able to find out the reason for it.

Please help me with this.

Re: SQLRTGetServers method not working on 64 bit OS

I tested it with a new InstallScript project on my 64-bit version of Windows 7 box, but it worked fine. Are you getting an empty list or some of instances are missing?

Re: SQLRTGetServers method not working on 64 bit OS

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I have tested on the same machine having configuration 64 bit windows 7 .
In my case the List is returned empty.
I am using Installshield 2010 installscript project and SQL Server 2008 R2 64 bit.

When I searched for any solution on google,I found out one link in which it is stated that sqlrt dll does not work with Installshield 2010.

The link is,
http://community.installshield.com/archive/index.php?t-192396.html

Please check this link for your reference.In this link you have mentioned that InstallShield 2010 SP1 hotfix will solve this problem.In this hotfix,is that problrm fixed.If yes then where can I find that hotfix.

Please help me with this.

Thanks once again.
