Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server in VS 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In App_Data folder, right click for add new database.

    Get the 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.

    SQLExpress2008 is loaded, I see it in the server explorer. I am able to connect to it.

    How do I either create the .mdf in the web app App_Data folder (it appears that if I go to SQL Express Studio, I can only create it in their default folder), or get this to work in VS?
