does the log reader application support name instances? My 14 days trial ran out on my sandbox so I installed it on another server that uses name instances.

The xp installed to the name instance without any problem but when I attempted to connect , I get error

unable to connect to database [tst\tst].[ref01] to retrieve backup files. Ensure you have access to the database.

exception of type system.outofmemoryexception was thrown.

and then I also get this error:

Failed to extract 2 backup file(s). Refere to the individual file(s) for more detail.

any suggestions on this problem?

I think the problems are
1. Log Rescue tries to load the entire backup history into memory. Try getting version 1.1 from ftp://ftp.red-gate.com, which will handle the situation gracefully.
2. SQL Log Rescue was developed independently of SQL Backup, so the version of sqb2mtf.exe that Log Rescue needs to convert SQL Backup files to native MTF is out of date and can only decompress backups created with SQL Backup 3.x. Try downloading sqb2mtf from our website (http://www.red-gate.com/downloads/sqb2mtf.zip) and copying it to the Log Rescue program folder.
