Default Connecting to Database

I'm working away in Chapter 11 of Beginning ASP.NET 3.5 in C# and I've hit a bit of a problem. I've tried opening the sample database (the .mdf file) but it says that I don't have SQL Express installed. I currently have SQL Server 2005 installed on the machine. I try opening that or the SQL Server Management Studio and am having no luck. Is there some sort of reference I can go to on how to allow that to work along with Visual Studio 2008 Professional? Currently I'm unable to get these two working.

Thanks!

Hi there,

Take a look here:

http://imar.spaanjaars.com/QuickDocId.aspx?quickdoc=395
http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archi...25/423703.aspx

If you're really new to this, you're probably better off installing SQLExpress side by side next to your current SQL 2005 installation. Makes it much easier to follow along with the examples.

BTW: can you please post book related question in the book's own forum here at P2P.wrox.com?

Cheers,

Imar

Hey thanks a lot for the help!

I've got SQL Server Express working now. Hopefully at some point I figure out how to get the other working. Right now, I just don't have time to go through some of the links you posted.

Thanks again!
