Hi All, I having issues openning the solution, it is asking for the database attachment MDF file. I try to use the website configuration tool in VS2005 but I get this error.
Could not establish a connection to the database.
If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider.
**** I will apreciate any advise in this issue...Thanks
Download the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express
You will be prompted for Server Name
how to figure out what your MachineName SeeImage
Look for Add New DataBase Menu whithin the RightMouse Click on your server icon, or on one of the folders within the server icon.
Forget about asp_Regsql it confusing. you can make it work thru the management studio.
So remember try to look for Add a new datbase file to the server.
explore the menu. you wil find one.
Because the problem is that your sql server need to know where is your mdf file. Sql server is a little fool who is need to know where the mdf file is located. show him the the path.
I can't provide more acurate information bacause I'm sitting on the new vista now, and it will take me a few days to setup all the programms including SQLserver2005.
I hope this information will help.
