anybody had trouble getting SiSoft Sandra 2005 to run ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just can't get it to run, period.

I could run 2004 but I have tried to run 2005 on 2 different builds with no success.

It won't start from the shortcut or the control panel

I've downloaded it from 20 different sites 20 different times.

Uninstalled each time, downloaded from diff links, etc.

baffling.

OK I figured it out.

ODBC or another type of database resouce must be installed. (XP does not install these by default)

So I guess I answered my own question
