Not sure if this belongs here or in a Visual Web developer forum, but I
the problem is SQL Server.
I installed SQL Server Express 2005. I can access it from the SQL
Management Studio Express to add databases, add tables, etc.
However, I cannot create an ODBC connection to it.
In addition, when I try to create a SQL Database from Visual Web
2005 Express Edition, I get the following error message:
"Connections to SQL Server files (*.mdf) require SQL Server Express 2005
function properly. Please verify the installation of the component or
download from the URL http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=49251"
When I go to that URL, it brings me to the page to download SQL Server
My machine is a Dell Latitude D620, 1gig memory, 60gig hard drive
Professional up-to-date with all service packs, patches, hotfixes, etc.
One thing, when I went to download DotNet2.0, Microsoft took me to a
where it downloaded DotNet3.5. Would that have anything to do with the
Any thoughts? And thanks in advance. I'm really new to dot net, SQL
