Default Same error 26 using book beginning visual basic 2012, ch.15

I started chapter 15 in Beginning Visual Basic 2012 and followed all the directions for downloading SQL Server 2012 Express... even installed a named instance of SQLEXPRESS & pubs database. When i started the first TRY IT OUT: Creating Tables and try to connect to server in SQL Server Management Studio using either (local)\SQLEXPRESS or my computer name: Student-LT\SQLEXPRESS as server name, along with SQL Server Authentication as Authentication, Login as sa, and password as wrox.... i get error 26 each time. i even tried what the textbook recommended (localhost, (local), a period, the IP address or computer name). None of this worked. i tried switching the authentication to windows auth, still did not work. I decided to look into this forum and found a similar question, but its for a different textbook. the server name you recommended it (localdb)\v11.0 and windows auth. This allows me to connect, but i'm not sure if that is what i should use for this chapter. Please help.

Hi there,

Maybe you didn't install SQL Server Express on your machine? Does your book come with instructions on installing it?

That is what I downloaded. If you look at my original post, after the url link I put the name of the file in parenthesis, so that people could see what I was downloading. I also tried loging in with (localdb)\v11.0 and that is when I got the error message I posted in my title thread.
