Hi Nitin,

These are the steps i’m following:

1.Microsoft dynamics Ax setup

Select installation type:-Developer installation


2.Select database type:Microsoft SQL Server


3.Connect to SQL Server database:

ServerName:Give my SQL Server name.

Database:My db(Which is existing one)

In this step i’m getting an error…as soon as i’m selecting my database…

if database is there as you said, you can use "Add or Remove " component option

then select Database(Microsoft SQL Server) check box from base node → select server as well as Database–> install

After that go to Server Configuration file create new configuration select your database and save it.

after installation there is need to follow the Initialization =Checklist.

hop it will help you.
