Default Stuck at appendix B! SQL error...

Hi,

I have followed all the insructions in appendix B of Begining ASP.NET 2.0 and when I run the WroxUnited Default.aspx I get the following error on this line:

Return CType(Me.GetPropertyValue("Theme"),String)

The error text:

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

I have posted questions in several forums about this error message but no one seems to be able to help! The best I have been able to find are posts asking the same question without any answers. Can anyone help? I will make sure I pass your advise onto those other forums also.

Hi there,

Did you just ask questions in forums, or did you also Google for this? Googling for the error message: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...connections%22

brings up articles like this:

Cheers,

Imar

Hi -

 I had the same problem. I think I got it fixed. See my post from today 5/5/2006 in the topic "Wrox with VS Pro and SQL Server 2005 Standard".
