These are the steps we followed to install Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 in Windows Server 2008 R2 machine (Here we had the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 installed on a different server)
Before running the setup, first we added the .NET Framework 3.5.1 Features from Server Manager.
After running the installer we got the following error in the Environment Diagnostics Wizard.
ERROR : (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 – Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: )
We followed the step mentioned in this article to resolve this issue.
On running the installer again, we got this issue
