Default Problem checking installation with Cassini

I get an error code when I try to open the wroxunited/default.aspx using cassini in the Visual Web Developer. This is the error code:

quote:System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException was unhandled by user code

I do not have SQL2005 on my machine. Rather, I am using SQL Express.
and have not had a problem throughtout the book when I used that.

I have two suggestions: 1. Use SQL Express if possible.

2. Read DanjPohl's entry below (over 1000 readers), wherein he and others have
a lot to say about the differences using SQL 2005 vs. SQL Express. Perhaps your
answer lies in there.

Good Luck,
