I have similar problem as gvecino.
I have installed sql server express with vwd express in the same one time(using installer option to do it automatically).
When I click on Administer Website and click on the security link it takes me to: http://localhost:portno/asp.netwebad...security0.aspx
And I see message like this:
There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.
When I am trying to refresh the site I am getting different message:
The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: An error occurred during the execution of the SQL file 'InstallCommon.sql'. The SQL error number is 5170 and the SqlException message is: Cannot create file 'C:\WEBSITES\BEGIN\CHAPTER04\APP_DATA\ASPNETDB_TMP .MDF' because it already exists. Change the file path or the file name, and retry the operation. CREATE DATABASE failed. Some file names listed could not be created. Check related errors. Creating the ASPNETDB_0806ff56103e4d5cb0e06f8c97a5ab84 database...
And in the folder there really is a database ASPNETDB_TMP.MDF' along with log file.
When I am creating a database in database explorer in the same folder('C:\WEBSITES\BEGIN\CHAPTER04\APP_DATA ) and using the feature to test connection it is showing that every thing is OK â it is connected. After that I am trying to use website administration tool -> security I am getting the same communicate as before.
Additionally when I am trying to connect ( using the database explorer ) the database created by web administration tool it is impossible, I get communicate -logging failed.
I am working on windows 2000 sp4.
ThX for help.
