I dragged the book download PlanetWrox. mdf file in , doubled clicked it, and got the same error message.
But can you try it out with a new database? E.g. create a brand new site, right-click App_Data, choose Add New Item and then add a SQL database. Then trying adding a table. Does that work?

I guess the Server Browser should not be in stopped state.
It doesn't have to run. It broadcasts the existence of SQL on the network, but you don't need it if you know its instance name.
