MSDE_CONNECTION_STRING  is only if that program dont get connection to SQL server.

If your local sql server is "server2" Then use this

Protected Const SQL_CONNECTION_STRING As String = _
        "Server=server2;" & _
        "DataBase=Northwind;" & _
        "Integrated Security=SSPI;Connect Timeout=5"

Your "Server=..." portion should only point to the name of the server unless SQL Server has been iinstalled with a "named instance."  SQL Server can be installed in one of two ways:

1) Default instance.  This is the normal way.  The instance name of the SQL Server is the name of the server machine.
2) Named instance.  An example of this would be where the default instance is SQL Server 2000, and separate instance of SQL Server 2005 has been installed.  I have this on my laptop.  The default instance is my MACHINENAME.  The named instance is "MACHINENAME\SQL2005".

You need to change your connection string to say "Server=<<put the machine name here>>" unless your SQL Server is a named instance.  In that case it would be "Server=<<machine name/instance name>>".  Everything else looks fine.

I will need to see the code where this is happening.  It looks like you are showing a form, closing it (which is where it is getting disposed) and then trying to show it again.

Ernesto...  

You're going to need to paste your code into a post.  EE experts are definitely not going to try to find "101 VB.NET Samples".  I would very much like to help you get past the errors, but you'll need to put a little bit more into this for me to be able to help.

dont forget to add :
user=;pwd=; (if any)

If the connection string has "Integrated Security=SSPI" there is no need for "user=...;pwd=..."

You can connect with this connection string also but you need to install MSDE with the Northwind database installed.

Protected Const MSDE_CONNECTION_STRING As String = _
                "Server=(local)\VSDotNet;" & _
                "DataBase=Northwind;" & _
                "Integrated Security=SSPI;Connect Timeout=5"

Most likely you have a form you are using as a dialog.  The instance is being created when the dialog is shown, then disposed wjen the dialog is dismissed.  If you try to show the dialog again without creating a new instance, you will get this error.
