I uninstalled VS2008 and set up VS2010.
Since I already have SQL Server 08 Dev Edition in my computer, I didn't select
the SQL Express option during the setup. When I try to add a new SQL Server
Database item to an ASPX file of a website, it fails and the following message
Connections to SQL Server database files
(.mdf) require SQL Server 2005 Express or SQL Server 2008 Express to be
installed and running on the local computer.
However I can drag a SqlDataSource control
to the page and successfully connected to a table of an existing .mdf. The only
problem is I can't access the Database Explorer.
How can I solve this problem?
