Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

To enable this hotfix after you apply it, add the Database Connect Timeout registry entry to the following registry subkey:

Then, set the value of the registry entry to the number of seconds that you want for the database connection time-out value. The Database Connect Timeout registry entry represents the time-out value in seconds of the OLEDB database connection.

To enable this hotfix and set the time-out value of the database connection, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\Secure
  3. After you select the subkey that is specified in step 2, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click DWORD Value.
  4. Type Database Connect Timeout, and then press ENTER.
  5. Right-click Database Connect Timeout, and then click Modify.
  6. In the Value data box, type the number of seconds that you want for the database connection time-out value, and then click OK.
