I am trying to add a new database via the App_Data Folder and I receive an error described below.
When I attempt to add ANY TYPE OF SQL SERVER DATABASE through the App_Data folder I receive this error "Connections to SQL Server Files (*.mdf) require SQL Server Express 2008 to function properly. Please verify the installation of the component
or download from the URl."
I can create a db via SQL Server Mgmt Studio, it connects fine, and I can see tables.
Visual Studio- Server Explorer connects fine to the Database, I can see the tables.
Im running XP SP3 w/ Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer. I had previously removed SQL Server Express.
Why cant I access the database within my project, when Im able to connect to this fine within Visual Studio Server Explorer?
