Visual Web Dev Express 2008 and SQL server Express 2005 database connection problem

Apologies if this has already been covered, i can't find any search function on the forum.

I have a somewhat annoying problem with the above software.

I use Vista Home Premium x64 and have decided to install VWD 2008 and SQL2005 to learn ASP and SQL development. I only have a moderate undertanding of standard HTML and would like to expand my knowledge. 

It is the final non-beta version of VWD 2008.

The install went fine and no errors were shown.

After trying to connect to the database via the ASP.NET application tool in VWD it gives an "unable to connect to the database error". The only solution i have found is to disable UAC. The connection then seems to work perfectly.

I don't wish to disable UAC every time i use the program as i do find it a usefull security feature.

Can anybody suggest why this is happening and any work around that may work?

I have done some extensive research into this already and have tried a number of solutions posted by other users to no avail. I can connect to the database through other means this just appears to be an issue with VWD and that particular tool.

Please bear in mind i'm pretty novice when it comes to databases and sql.

Thanks for any help :-)

Visual Web Dev 2005 Express & SQL 2005 Express
Last week I downloaded and installed Vis Web Dev Express 2005 and have it running absolutely fine.  2 days later I downloaded the most recent SQL Server Express but when I try to install it, I get a message saying it has "detected incompatible beta components fromVisual Studio or SQL Server" and that I must "run the build clean up wizard from the cd."  Since I downloaded both parts I dont have a cd.  I dont particularly want to uninstall webdev express because the download was so slow the first time and it doesn't leave an install file for reinstallation.  What's my best ...

move database from web dev express to SQL 2005 or SQL Express
I'm guessing something like this has been posted before, but I'm having trouble finding excatly what I'm looking for.  Here's the situation. I am building a site based on the club starter kit.  The database appears to be part of the web project.  I've modified some of the tables so it's not the original club database anymore. I would like to move this database to SQL Express (i.e. the database will appear in my SQL Server Mgmt. Studio) and I would also like to try to move it to SQL 2005.  I don't have a host yet, so I think being able to move it to either product would ...

SQL Server 2005 Installation problems with SQL Server Express & SQL Server 2000
Hi Guys, I have had SQL Server Express and Sql Server Management Studio Express installed on my machine for some time and recently tried to install a trial of SQL Server 2005 as well.  (Yes, I'm migrating from Visual Studio Express to Visual Studio Professional, just as in tended!) Everything went fine except that nothing seemed to be installed.  I searched in all the obvious places - both on the Start/Programs menu and on the hard-drive: nothing. A check under Add/Remove Programs showed that Sql Server 2005 Express was installed, but called SQL Server 2005. So after a number o...
