Create Service Accounts for SQL Server 2008 on Windows Vista Home Premium


  • I'm trying to follow the install instructions in SQL Server 2008 Step by Step.  The book is based on Windows XP Professional SP2.  I have Windows Vista Home Premium.  I need to create Service Accounts.  Where is the corresponding path to this on Vista? This path is described in the book:

    1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and select Manage
    2. Expand Local Users and Groups, and select Users
    3. Right-click in the right-hand panel and select New User
    4. Specify SQL2008BSDE in the User name field...

    How can I get to New User in Vista?
