Default VS crashing when trying to open tables in Server Explorer

I finally made it to Chapter 12! I'm working through the first "Try it Out" to with the sample table data I downloaded from the Resources Folder. I go through all the steps on "Selecting Data from the Sample Database" (I copied the file from the Resources folder to the DatabaseTest Folder per instructions). Each time I right click to "Show Table Data" on either of the tables, VS10 crashes. . I was thinking about perhaps figuring out how to create a table of data to see if it would open, but I'm not at that chapter of the book yet. Should I skip ahead?

Note: I am using the MSDN LEGALLY provided version of VS Studio 10 Ultimate and supposedly loaded all components of the program running on a Win 7 64 bit system. I have installed all Windows Updates.

I'm usually pretty good at trying to troubleshoot crashes, but I have absolutely no idea where to start. Thanks in advance,

W!

Hi there,

I haven't seen the behavior you're describing myself so not sure what to recommend. You could try repairing your VS installation, or open a support ticket with Microsoft.

Cheers,

Imar

Default I did a bit more research -- "not connected" icon?

It just so happens I loaded VS10 & the ASPBEG folder on my laptop to go through the book at work. I went through the instructions in chapter 12 on my laptop, and yes, I can see the actual records in the tables when I right-clicked. So, I went back to my workstation and noticed the database MDL file I copied to the App_Data folder has a little red "x" on it. I believe this indicates that the database isn't connected, after I googled it once or twice.

I will continue to research, but perhaps it's a way I've configured VS10? Thanks for your prompt reply as always.

Maybe you don't have SqlExpress running or installed on that machine?

Can you assist or provide direction to instructions on doing a total MANUAL UNINSTALL OF VS10 Ultimate? Internet research will reveal that simply using "Add/Remove Programs" or the extremely weak uninstall utility provided by my Microsoft is ineffective.

Reason for asking: I was having issues last week with the "show table data" function crashing VS10--which I found was also well documented on the web, but no concrete answers. Fortunately I had a working installation of VS10 Ultimate on another computer, and I was able to continue on in the textbook while trying to troubleshoot the "show data issue." I found that, after two attempts to uninstall and install the program (including the SQLServer and SQLwriter) it still wasn't working, and I found remnants of old files still left after uninstall. It just so happens both computers I use are configured almost identical, so I'm having issues figuring out what caused the problem.

Hi there,

Not really. I usually restore an image when I run into trouble like this. They only advice I can give you is to look in Programs and Features and uninstall whatever you installed on the same day you installed VS 2010.

Cheers,

Imar
