i've been trying to create a small application that attaches to a database. what i find is that a hand coded example can attach to a database (at least a local .mdb file and code from the deitel site). the sample compiles and runs. when i try add a data source or open the server explorer, studio hangs for a good while and eventually dies with no explanation. it never shows the server explorer and stops in the data source wizard before i can "create new connection."

i loaded SP1 to studio, did a repair install, uninstalled/reinstalled and SP1 again, with no difference other than a lost day.

has someone seen this and even better, do you know the fix
