Can not connect to user instance of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services in Visual Studio 2

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
I used SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services (not SQL Server 2008 Express) in Visual Studio 2010 because it is the fast and easy way to developed and managed data-driven applications with powerful built-in reporting and full-text search functionality. I received Sql Server 2008 Service Pack 1 with Windows Update. It's ok if I connect to instance of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services (with SP1) through SQL Server Management, but if I try to attach a database in Server Explorer (Visual Studio 2010), I get the following error: "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed." I'm stuck at this point. Is there a fix or a workaround? I've already tried deleting the 'C:\Users\Administrtor\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS' directory as mentioned in other posts, with no luck. The error.log at 'C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS\error.log' has the following relevant entries: 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server      Error: 17156, Severity: 16, State: 1. 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server      initeventlog: Could not initiate the EventLog Service for the key '3677F6D3-17C7-4F', last error code is 2. 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server &

How to connect to local instance of SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express ?

  

I just installed SQL Server 2008 Management studio Express on my Vista machine.

i tried connecting to local machine using :

.\sqlexpress, (local)\sqlexpress, or .\SQLExpress, MyPCNAME\SQLExpress

nothing is working, getting this error:

Can't connect to SQL Express 2008 from Visual Studio, but can connect from SQL Server Management St

  

 

I've been struggling with the following issue for 3 days:  I can access and use my SQL Express 2008R2 database flawlessly from SQL Server Management Studio.  But I can only intermittently access it from Visual Studio (ultimate edition with TF Server).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  I mostly see the error when I try to "Update Model from Database" within my Entity framework model, or when I try to access the database from within Server Explorer.

 

Here is the error I see when I try to update my Entities form the Database: An error occurred while connecting to the database.  The database might be unavailable.  An exception of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException' occurred.  The error message is: 'Cannot open user default database. Login failed.  Login failed for user 'Tim-PC\Tim'.'

 

I think the connection string is fine as I am able to connect

Windows XP, Visual Studio Express 2010 and SQL Server 2008 Express - How can I save modified columns

  

Hi,

I am using c# in VS 2010 Express. I have a MDF database that I connect to through "Database Explorer". Database Explorer will not let me SAVE columns that I have modified. As I know in SQL Server 2008 full edition you can change the setting "Prevent saving changes that require table recreation" in Management Console to prevent this. I haven't got Management Console and can't see it in install.

How do I change this setting if I haven't got management console? Is it in Registry or Config File.

Thanks.

John.   


SQL Server Express 2008 and Visual Studio Express 2010

  

Hi,


A few months ago I upgraded to VS2010 - at the same time I thought it would be good to upgrade to SQL Express 2008 R2.

It turned out that there was some compatibility issues between the two - "...cannot be opened because it is version 661. This server supports version 655 and earlier. A downgrade path is not supported."  After much trouble I restored the database and have done most of the stuff I need through VS itself.

Now I need to use SQL itself and am positively scared to death of what it could do to my database again.  Can anyone offer any advice - it is a service pack update or something...?


Thanks


John




SQL Server 2008 Express Management Studio fails to install because it thinks visual studio is instal

  

I tried to install SQL Server 2008 R1 Express with Tools on Windows Server 2008 R2. It installed, but the management studio failed to install because it said I already had Visual Studio installed and it needed Visual Studio service pack 1 before Management Studio could install.

Visual Studio is nowhere to be found in Programs and Features, and when I try to install Visual Studio SP1, it won't install, saying:

A compatible version of Visual Studio 2008 was not detected on the system. This update is designed for only the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (ENU) product family, and is not compatible with any Express editions.

Though I can't find any Express version of SP1 to try, and there is no SP1 in windows update.

Cannot connect Visual Studio 2008 to Sql Server 2005

  

I have Windows 7 and installed Visual Studio 2008 Pro and also installed SQL server developer addiotion that comes with VS. After creating a test database in SQL maangement studio and adding the standard asp.net membership provider tables with the aspnet_regsql tool, I created a web project and added a connection string to the web.config file to connect to the database.

No matter what, I cannot connect to the database.

I can create a connection through the server explorer in visual studio and when I drag a sqldatasource onto my page and configure it I can connect to the database etc. But no web.config connection.

This worked on my XP pro machine but not Windows 7.

Has anybody had this problem and what am I doing wrong.

thanks


CSS support in visual studio 2008 express edition

  

I have several css style sheets I want to work with.  I have copied them into the appropriate directory structure in my project.  The styles are applied correctly.

But the manage CSS styles tool bar on the left margin doesn't seem to work correctly.  At one point I had generated a style sheet and worked with it there, but now it not only can't find the one it generated, but the attach style sheet link doesn't respond at all, nor does anything in this bar.  Same deadness with the CSS Properties bar.  With or without a style sheet loaded in the editor -- a style sheet that is active in the project such that when I run it, the styles are applied.

VB version of studio, running on Vista home basic.


PS, the design mode works a lot better than the professional version I use in my day job on XP and server 2003.



Having problems installing/setting up SQL Server 2008 Express/R2 for ASP.NET user management on deve

  
I'm a bit new to installing and configuring, well, just about anything regarding databases, so please bear with me. I'm currently building a couple of ASP.NET MVC 2 sites.  I'm following along with the MVCMusicStore tutorial, and am trying to set up user management using ASP.NET's configuration tool.  The problem is that ASP.NET can't 'see' the database. I have SQL Server 2008 installed on my laptop.  It's the version which is available on the Web Platform Installer (I believe it's Express).  When I try running the aspnet_sqlreg.exe program to set up my user management database, it can't tell that I'm running any version of SQL Server at all.  I get an exception about 'named pipes', and some other things I don't understand at the moment. Obviously, this is all a bit over my head.  Is there an idiot proof guide or tutorial available that describes, step-by-step, how to: 1. Install SQL Server 2008 on a development PC 2. How to configure it to be used by Visual Studio 2010 Professional 3. How to properly upload/modify the db on the production server with what's on the development PC Essentially, all the things that the ASP.NET tutorials gloss over.  Any suggestions, links to documentation, or other nudges in the right direction would be immensely appreciated.

SQL 2008 Express with advanced services and Visual studios 2010

  
Hi could someone please help me. Im running the following software: SQL 2008 Express R2 with advanced services Visual Studios 2010 Ultimate   I am trying to using Sql in Visual studios to use full text indexing but I am attaching a database that already exists. My problem is that I can use the full text indexing? I had it working once but then when i tried to FREETEXT search through my table it said that I didn't have an index on that table when I know I do cause I went to make sure. I think that perhaps its referencing the wrong database because I cant seem to add the database into my project? I am so confused as to how SQL express instances work so not sure what I am doing wrong? PLEASE HELP?

How to save Windows credentials to a data source in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 using Visual

  
I am trying to create a shared data source for SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 that uses a specific Windows user ID and password to connect to the database. Using the Report Manager web interface, if I create a shared data source and specify "Credentials stored securely in the report server", I can check the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. This tells SSRS that the user ID and password I specify are from a Windows user, not a SQL Server user. I want to create the shared data source using Visual Studio though. In Visual Studio I have an option to use stored credentials but there is no equivalent of the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. SSRS always assumes that user and password are for a SQL Server user, not a Windows user, and thus the connection fails. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio that the stored credentials are for a Windows user?

Connect to SQL Server 2008 Express

  
Hi Guys, I have just started a personal project for our Corporate Desktop environment to actively track our Hardware and Software Inventory.  My plan is this for starters:   1 Computer using VBScript and WMI to gather the data, store the data into SQL Server 2008 Express, and present the data using ASP.NET or Javascript. The VBScript will get a list of computers from AD under specified OUs and will run on a scheduled task.   This deployment will initially be on 1 desktop computer for now.  How do I connect to SQL Server 2008 locally using OLEDB from my vbscript?  Will this require a username/password even though it is a local connection?  If it does require a password, do you know a way to prevent the password from being stored as clear text.  Does Windows Integrated configuration on the SQL Server 2008 Express allow a passthrough of credentials from the Scheduled Task so that the password is not required from the script?  I would like it to be as secure as possible since we have financial services users and we would be under the scope of an audit if ever it was needed or requested.  Thanks guys.  :-)
