Attach Database Failure RRS feed

    I am working on the exercises in Murach's ASP.NET 4.5 web programming with C# 2012.  My version of VS is 2013 Ultimate.  In chapter 4, the exercise calls for adding a SqlDataSource control to the web form, then configure the data source.  In the Configure Data Source dialog, the .mdf file appears in the dropdown list of data connections.  I can select it and move to the next screen upon clicking Next.  However, on the Connection String window, when I click Next, I get the error shown in the screenshot below.  I don't know how to fix whatever is wrong.  Advice?

    Note: the exercise should be using IIS Express.
