Same error 26 using book beginning visual basic 2012, ch.15
I started chapter 15 in Beginning Visual Basic 2012 and followed all the directions for downloading SQL Server 2012 Express... even installed a named instance of SQLEXPRESS & pubs database. When i started the first TRY IT OUT: Creating Tables and try to connect to server in SQL Server Management Studio using either (local)\SQLEXPRESS or my computer name: Student-LT\SQLEXPRESS as server name, along with SQL Server Authentication as Authentication, Login as sa, and password as wrox.... i get error 26 each time. i even tried what the textbook recommended (localhost, (local), a period, the IP address or computer name). None of this worked. i tried switching the authentication to windows auth, still did not work. I decided to look into this forum and found a similar question, but its for a different textbook. the server name you recommended it (localdb)\v11.0 and windows auth. This allows me to connect, but i'm not sure if that is what i should use for this chapter. Please help.
