Languages

This sample uses Visual C++.

Prerequisites

Before running this sample, make sure the following software is installed:
  • SQL Server or SQL Server Express including Database Engine. You can download SQL Server Express from the Microsoft Download Center.
  • The AdventureWorks database which is included with SQL Server, and is also available at the Microsoft SQL Server Developer Center.
  • The samples. These samples are included with SQL Server. You can download the latest version of the samples at the Microsoft SQL Server Developer Center.
  • .NET Framework SDK 2.0 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. You can obtain .NET Framework SDK free of charge. See Installing the .NET Framework SDK.

Building the Sample

  • This sample connects to your computer's default SQL Server instance (on some Windows operating systems, you will need to change (localhost) or (local) to the name of your SQL Server instance). To connect to a named instance, change the connection string from L"(local)" to L"(local)\\name" , where name is the named instance. By default, SQL Server Express installs to a named instance.
  • Make sure your INCLUDE environment variable includes the directory that contains sqlncli.h.
  • If you are using Visual Studio, load the GetRowsUsingBookmark.sln file and build it.
  • If you are using MSBuild.exe, invoke MSBuild.exe at a command prompt, passing it the GetRowsUsingBookmark.sln file: * MSBuild GetRowsUsingBookmark.sln *

Running the Sample

  • From Visual Studio, invoke Start Without Debugging (CTRL+F5).
  • If you built with MSBuild.exe, invoke GetRowsUsingBookmark.exe. © 2007 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
