Hi there,

A couple of things to test / check:

1. Which version of SQL Sevrer are you using? Use "SQL Server Configuration Manager" from the start menu to find out

2. What's the name of your SQL Instance?

3. What happens when you create a brand new web site, add App_Data and a SQL Server databae and open that. Does that work?

4. Are you trying this out with your own database, or with one from the download?

5. Can you log in using SQL Server Management Studio?

Cheers,

Imar
