  • Looks like you installed the right packages.   Maybe you should try and repair/reinstall visual studio

  • Hi Everett Carson,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    I notice that you have installed Visual Studio Team Explorer 2019 and Visual Studio Community 2019. As far as I know, VS Team Explorer is a free solution for non-developers to interact with Azure DevOps Server and Azure DevOps which means it is not very similar with Visual Studio. And after I checked, I think you could create and access to SQL Server if you launch and use VS Community 2019 instead of using VS Team Explorer 2019.

    You could click this link Visual Studio 2019 Release Notes for Release Notes.

    Not sure if you launch the VS Team Explorer and I recommend you could try to open VS Community 2019 (open Visual Studio Installer -> find Visual Studio Community 2019 -> Launch) and create then use new project to connect to a local SQL Server. If you still could not do this, please feel free to let us know.

    Hope this could help you and any feedback would be great expected.

    Sincerely,

    Tianyu

  • Hi Everettc4,

    Sorry to bother you.

    As tianyu says, you need to create a winform project in VS2019 community instead of Team explorer. 

    And from your images, it seems that you open VS(Team explorer) shortcuts directly on desktop. As far as I know, the visual studio 2019 community doesn't automatically generate shortcut. We recommend you open "Start Menu", then open visual studio 2019 (2).

    Hope it could help you.

    Best Regards,

    Dylan
