Microsoft SQL Server Error 3415

I had a database which I detached while still using SQL server 2005. Now that I have upgraded to Server 2008 I was receiving a 3415 error message each time I attempt to attach it to a new Database. I have read a lot of posts that I need to download this and that, or that I need to do this and that, nothing worked. I was not sure if I felt upset or stupid when I realised that all I needed to do is enable my PCs permissions. To do so, you need to:

  • Open the “User Account Control Settings” (type in Start if using Vista or Windows 7)
  •  Scroll down permissions to “Never Notify”
  • Click OK
  • ENJOY 🙂
