yeah... I want to rename the sql server engine instance, not just a table or database name.

I did try that. It made no difference.

comment How to connect through a proxy using Remote Desktop?
It was the proxy causing the problem. I found a workaround (connect to our VPN) which gets me around it.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give it a try. Oh, yes... remote desktop is enabled on the server.

I suspect it's the http proxy at work causing the problem. I'll try the telnet idea on Monday (working at home today).

comment SQL Server 2008 install error: VS2008 SP1?
Looks like I'm off and running. It was one of the SQL installs put there by VS2008. I removed everything that had "SQL" in it, though this post (stackoverflow.com/questions/844945/…) indicated the VS2008 Shell was the culprit.

I'm in the process of removing anything that looks suspicious. We'll see if that does it.
