VWD 2008 & SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition?

Does VWD 2008 Express SP1 work with any version of SQL Server (Express or Licensed)?

I am running a Vista Business client machine with:

  • SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition SP3 (Licensed version)
  • VWD 2008 Express SP1 (Express FREE version)

Everytime i try to connect to a database in VWD i get permissions problems on my *.mdf files. Does anyone know why this is when i only run the one user on my machine and my connections are attempting to use Windows Authentication?

 I thought maybe the express edition didn't work with licensed version of SQL Server?

As far as i know there are no issues with limitations of the version of SQL server as i dont beleive that system.data.sqlclient even looks at the version of SQL, it simply queries the specified server and returns any errors found.

 Could you post the error which you get as when you say permissions, this could be permission to the mdf file or permissions to the database.




If you've had a problem then someone else has too. Google is your friend. google for your topic title.

Yeah, they are compatible. Make sure that "computer"\ASPNET has read and write access to your databases.

Hi, I am trying to use ASP.Net in MS Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition.
