So i installed sql express and the management console and have the sql service and browser running. I try to connect to my instance of sql express with the management console and it says it doenst allow remote connections.
What do i need to do to be able to use the management console?
I was able to connect before off a system refresh and installing everything new, but due to some bad advice, think i stuffed up the whole thing and had to uninstall sql express and the management console. I re-installed them both but am now getting this error. what the heck is the deal with this? It shouldnt be this hard!
This is in relation to an earlier issue i had trying to get to connect to a database from within visual web developer express and now i can connect to my sql express instance but cant get into the managment studio. :(
I just cant win! :P :(
