Summary13829: Save new question results in blank page and shows errors

Save new question: blank page + error when open a working page again
Save and New: error that question could not be created, but it was created

Steps To Reproduce

Create new Survey: fine
create new question Group: fine
create new question: enter Details -> press save - result: blank page

If you go back to the landing page then, you will see the red "Question could not be created" message but looking into the survey shows, that the question was created.

If I try it now with save and new, I will see the same "Question could not be created" message but the question is displayed in the structure view on the left side.

Additional Information

At the Moment it seems that mssql and LimeSurvey hate each other :(

I cannot reproduce this issue. Please activate debug mode in /applicaton/config/config.php and see if you get some error text.

unfortunately not

I tried it with MySQL - there everthing is fine but e.g. one difference is the URL
Example: check the URL of the white page - it Ends with gid/7/qid, using MySQL it is gid/7/qid/7

Unfortunately I have to use MSSQL

It seems there are a lot of errors with MSSQL at the Moment where LS says that something could not be saved but it actually is saved (e.g.
We can't find any Problems on DB side - the date gets written fine, just LS shows errors (or blank page)

That sounds like a good hint:

Try the following: Open /controllers/admin/database.php, around line 1264 there are the following lines:

        if ($oQuestion) {
            $this->iQuestionID = $oQuestion->qid;

replace it with

        if ($bResult==true) {
            $this->iQuestionID = $oQuestion->qid;

Let us know if it fixes the error.

Changed database.php, restarted Apache, restarted browser - sadly no change at all :(

How does your freetds.conf look like?

Do i need freetds for Windows? I checked the LS manual again but I can just find Linux related comments about freetds

If you give some more information I will do what I need to do here.
