Hide SQL Instance

I found even though I had the ‘hide’ flag set to ‘yes’ on my Laptop, its SQL instance would become visable on the network after every reboot.

The fix seems to be to change the sql-service properties from ‘automatic’ startup-type to ‘manual’.

After that, whenever I started SQL the ‘hide’ flag would be read and applied correctly.
