    I'm not sure how the club site starter kit is setup for the databases.  The project compiled and ran fine, but I couldn't figure out how to add events to the tables.  so then I installed SQl  server management studio expresds 2005 now I'm getting the following compile error.  I'm really not sure what I'm doing, just winging it right now.   When I open SQL and try to attach to club.mdf I get error 'unable to open the physical file "...blah"   operating system error 5: (Access is denied.). (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 5420)

    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 read the links and nothing recommended worked for me.  Please note that I'm using Vista.  I've un-installed SQl express 2005 .  Then tried to install sql 2008.  Now I show both of them in my startup menu, but nothing no sql server can be found.  From my asp.net application, no data connection can be made.

    What SQL install do I need?  I notice the clubsite starter kit is ~ 2006 timeframe, is it still valid for use with the new SQL and visual studio tools?

    Is there another way to get me up and running to create a website with a functioning calendar?  I really like the clubsite, but I'm going crazy trying to get the database connections. 

    Thanks for any help to point me in the right direction, Karey

    I have been away from this Kit and ASP.NET for ages now, just looking here reminds of the nightmars gone by.


    But for the sake of trying to help you out,

    Usually from what I rememeber you must also run the ASP.NET configuration by using the CTL F5 from inside VISUAL STUDIO and I do remember something

    about aspregnet for the sql.


    Hope that helps you get off on  the right foot.





    AS a side note, I looked for other instances of people solving this:

    I had to uninstall and reinstall SQL server 2005 and Express on my development machine. After the un-installation, I reinstalled SQL 2005 standard then SQL Express. When I tried to open a SQL express database in VS2k5 I got the 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.” After much searching, I found out the solution.

    1. Open SQL Server Configuration Manager. Navigation to Start > Microsoft SQL Server 2005 > Configuration Tools > SQL Server Configuration Manager


    2. Double-click SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) and change it to use LocalSystem

    3. Delete the folder
      Windows Vista: C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS
      Windows XP: c:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS

    That’s it.

    Does that fix your problem?

    For the SQL settings could we not go to our cpanel, php settings>DB name>settings>and edit thereon or at least ensure they will match our confile php file? I had problem using a subdomain and this helped tweak the configuration settings for me.
