I did so far a few websites in Dreamweaver, basically just simple static htm sites – and there were quite OK.
However, I wanted to build the site from the scratch using the ASP.NET and I get ready to start learning ASP.NET this year, so have downloaded the Visual Web Developer 2005 Express edition, with MS SQL Server and MS SQL Sample databases… successfully past through few lessens but the stuck with this lessen:
When I am trying to create the database as in there I have the message:
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
And I don’t know want is wrong. I check more-or-less everything that I can find on the net but with no success.
Can anyone tell me please what I am doing wrong, or what is the problem with my setup (if any)
Thank you for any advice.
