To Whom It May Concern

I have been able to access sqlwb successfully from the command line to open the query window but the object explorer window is

not expanded and requires a separate connection to be created. I was wondering is there a switch to enable both the query window and the object explorer window.

What switches are you using The object exploer is available under the View drop down or by pressing <F8> on your keyboard.

I am using -S, -U, -P and -d. What I want is for my users to automatically see the object explorer and not have to worry about pressing <F8> or using the view drop down as they are not IT staff, they are clerical/administrative/engineering staff. Could you please inform me of an alternative.

yours sincerely

There is no switch to force that to display. When you first open that window, it's stored in a registry key or config file that the window is open.

There are tools available (you'll have to google to find them) which will take a snapshot of the machine, you can then open the gui, and open the window, then take another snapshot and find all the differences in the config files and registry. You could then publish that setting out via a gpo so that when the gui is next opened it will show as you want it to.

Or tell them to press F8 the first time it opens.

Pressing F8 opens/closes the window, but it is empty. Object Explorer seems to want its own connection, and that apparently cannot be accomplished with existing command line parameters.
