Windows 7 + entity = no longer connecting RRS feed

  • Question

  • got a new laptop for work. It has windows 7 pro.

    I installed VS2010 + sp1 and VS2012 along with SQL express 2008 and 2012

    Problem I am running into is that my ASP.NET 4.0 projects that use entity can no longer connect to the database. I can't even use the wizard and the wizard doesn't even seem to see that I have a connection string in the app.config

    the odd thing is, one of the projects I can still run in debug mode and it works just fine the other one doesn't. I get the underlying provider failed to open message.

    Worked just find on old XP laptop with VS2010

    I have no idea what is causing this.  I can connect to the database through SQL2008 management studio. 

    i am also NOT trying to connect to a SQL server on my local machine.

    Other error i get is 

    "a connection was successfully established with the server but then an error occured during the pre-login handshake"
