  • Q: How to start SQL Service?

    A: The 'SQL Service' is mandatory to be running in order for ServiceHost to communicate with the local databases on the workstation.

    Below are the steps required for this task:

    1.     Run the Task Manager and terminate all processes named 'ServiceHost'.

    2.     Navigate to Start -> Run -> Type: services.msc -> Enter

    3.     Start 'SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS)' service available in Services module.

    4.     Afterwards, launch Servicehost.exe, through Start -> Type: ServiceHost -> Enter
