Default [BegASP.NET4] Ch12 pg 406-407 (Try it Out)access db within VWD

BTW, have you tried emptying the folder uded by SQL? It's probably not located here:

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS.

but here:

C:\Users\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS.

on Vista.

The above path does not show up in (Vista) Windows Explorer. After doing a search for SQLEXPRESS folder in the C: Drive, in the explorer, I found the folder as a shortcut. Double clicking the shortcut, then changed the folders presented under Desktop to

USERNAME\AppData\Local\ Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS. It was amazing to see all the new folders in the path showing up and expanded.

After I deleted the files in this folder I was finally able to see the database and all its files under the project Data Connections.

Thanks! Imar
