I just pulled down the latest version 3.86 and I am not able to connect to a sql instance. In previous version I have not seen this issue :( Below is the error:
- Testing access to SQL server/instance/alias: P10SPTSQL01\ALSHAREPOINTDEV
- Trying to connect to "P10SPTSQL01\ALSHAREPOINTDEV"... - Fail
Here is the config values:
- Script halted!
- Connection Error. Check server name, port, firewall.
Press any key to exit...
<!-- If you are creating an alias (recommended!), <DBServer> is actually the value of the SQL alias; otherwise it's the NetBIOS name of the SQL server or instance.
If you leave <DBServer> blank or specify localhost, script will assume the local server for SQL databases -->
<!-- The script can create a SQL alias for you. Enter the DBInstance, and if you leave <DBPort> blank, script will assume default port value of 1433 -->

I just had to remove the DB Alias on the local OS level and the installer worked just fine.
