OS: Windows Vista Ultimate
Using Visual Studio 2005  Professional with SQL Server Developer 2005 SP2

Open a New Windows Application add a new item choose SQL database generates the following error

Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failue in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will now be closed.

When I had installed Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005 on my Windows XP machine I could add an SQL database easily by these steps. Is this an SQL Server problem or a Visual Studio 2005 problem with Windows Vista?
