    See Cannot create file *.mdf because it already exists. I did as Alvaro Ramirez said; I detached the database in Server Explorer. That solved the problem for me. The thread in my original post might be a waste of time for some people.

    Alvaro Ramirez deserves credit for this answer but that thread is locked. I posted this question and answer in case it saves people's time in the future.
