PRB: 'This object has not been initialised' error when opening the Zetalink configuration



ID: ZTN2008

This Zetalink technical note applies to:

  • Zetalink version 1.0


When you try to run the Zetalink configuration program and view the Activity log, the following error message is displayed:

This object has not been initialised


When the Zetalink configuration program is started, it extracts some information from the Zetalink database to display configuration settings and logging information. This database is stored on a Microsoft SQL server or a system running MSDE (Microsoft Data Engine), if the SQL service is not running the message above is displayed.


Log onto the SQL server or system running MSDE as a user with administrative rights.

Run the services snap-in from Control panel to display the list of services currently installed on the system. Find the 'MSSQLServer' service set it's 'Startup Type' to automatic and start it.


This has been identified by Equisys as a problem with the software versions given above.
