I've done a fresh install of php and limesurvey on a windows 2003 server.

PHP Version 5.3.9 and LimeSurvey 1.91

I've also installed fastcgi and configured it in IIS.

I've configured it with MS SQl and created an ODBC.

Now when I try to access the ..limesurvey/admin/install/index.php I get the following error:
Can't connect to LimeSurvey database. Reason: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

Many thanks in advance for any help and advice!

Sorry, this isn't a Limesurvey problem but a server configuration/setuo problem.
Therefore I recommend to ask the question at a MS SQL forum.

I appreciate what you're saying, however I've managed to fix it now and it turned out to be a typo in the limesurvey config.php - so it was user error ;)
