I am trying to get an app I created in VB.NET to run on a client machine. The app runs fine on my development machine but when I copy it to a client machine I receive the error:
Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance.
I have installed SQL Server Express on both pcs with identical accounts and running identical versions.
What's strange is if I change User Instance = True to User Instance = False in the code, the app runs on the client machine but not on my developer machine.
It seems more like a SQL Server issue than a VB.NET issue.
