Question error msg opening database CoffeeSQL.mft

Dear all,

I am running Visual C# express editions 2005 and 2008 under Windows 7.

When opening the CoffeeSQL.mft database as instructed in chapter 11 page 187 sub 4 and 5 I get an error message.

Database C:\USERS\STEVEN\DOWNLOADS\VISUAL C 2005 VOORBEELDEN\C# EXPRESSCODE\COFFEESQL.mdf'.CREATe DATABASE' cannot be upgraded because it's non release version (603) is not supported by this version of SQL Server. You cannot open a database that is incompatible with this version of sqlservr.exe. You must re-create database.
Could not open new database
An attempt to attach an auto-named database for file
C:\Users\Steven\Downloads\Visual C2005 voorbeelden\C# Express Code\CoffeeSQL.mdf failed. A database with the same name exists, or specified file cannot be opened, or it is loacted on UNC share. "

I get this error in both versions 2005 and 2008 of Visual C# Express Editions.
Maybe it is an Windows 7 incompatability, but I can't be sure.

Can somebody help me with this problem?

Thanks in advance.
