I get this error when I try to use website ASP. Net Configuration.

When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connection. ( provider: SQL Server Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Location Server/Instance Specified)

I right clicked on Data Base open modify connection clicked on

Advance properties was set: Data Source .\SQLEXPRESS

Any help


Re: Installing and Registering Visual Studio Express Editions When connecting to SQL Server 2005


I got it figured out.

I had install the wrong version Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition.

Working great.
