Conflict with VS SQL's on VS 2010 and VS 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1176705114 posted

    I have installed VS 2010 Professional and VS  2012 Professional, both academic versions on Windows 8 (new install).  I’m having a problem with SQL Express on VS 2010.  It tells me there is conflicts between SQL express 2008 and SQL express R2.  I am assuming  VS 2012 uses the R2 version because I can make a DB with it.  How can I fix this problem?

    I don’t know much about this kind of stuff and have trouble finding the answers.  I don’t know much about VS, either.  But I want to try and learn but can’t ever seem to make VS work correctly so I can learn the programming part.  Any help would be appreciated but please KIS.

    I guess It may be caused due to same instance name in both version...

    No VS2012 is compatible with SQL Server 2008..

    Dont Get Dishearted so early.. Practice makes a Man Perfect.. By the way can you tell what error message are you getting when you are trying to open either of the databases..
