Default thanks

Finally got through chapter 12.

Being something of a novice I didnt know how to use SQL Server Management Studio to resolve the problem. Uninstalled SQL 2012 & SQL 2008 R2. Reinstalled SQL 2008 R2. Then got this message:

'Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed.'

Deleted contents of C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS as recommended in other posts and it now works! Took me ages to sort it out.

Thanks again.
