I've been going through the VB training videos and reached the one on databases. I installed SQLExpress but when I try to add a database to a project I get the following error.
Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed.
I have an up-to-date XP system with .NET 2.0 and VBExpress2005 that works fine.
