Default Ch12 pg 406-407 (Try it Out)access db within VWD

Vista 64 bit, modify permissions and others are set

I get "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user interface." when I dbl click PlanetWrox.mdf in VWD database explorer. I have worked through ch19 and appendix B as best I could, but have not been able to get around this problem.

There are a lot of older messages/replies in forums on other sites for the same error message as above. These are for 2005 VWD, suggesting "local" problems/mismatch and to remove older user instances by deleting a SQLExpress folder with files, under a path not available in Windows Vista.
I not sure what else to include here.
