non-default SQL Server instance name

I manually pre-configured an instance of SQL Server 2008 R2 (x64,  
10.50.1600) for Shipping Solutions 9 Pro. I`ve created a named  
instance ( `MyServer\SSPro9` ), have attached the default database  
and logfile, but cannot get the DB tools to connect to the database. 
I see that the default instance name the product installs with is  
`SQLEXPRESS`, is this hard-coded into the DB Tools? Will I encounter  
other issues as I proceed with client installation and  
configuration? Thanks in advance.
Problem Type: Databases
Version Number: Pro 9.0
Status: Closed
Solution: You will not be able to use the DB Tools, but you can accomplish the same tasks with SQL Server Management Studio. Other than DB Tools, you should not have any problems using a SQL Server with a different name.
