SQL 2008 Express and Visual Studio 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I wanted to use a SQL 2008 Express Database in Visual Studio.

    When I click Add --> New Item  and choose Service-based Database I get an error message (Connections to SQL Server files (*.mdf) requires SQL Server Express 2005 to function properly. PLease verify the installation of the component or download from the URL: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=49251).

    How can I configure Visual Studio to use the 2008 Version of SQL Server Express?

    I have already installed the Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2008 (after I have installed SQL Server 2008).
