Can not connect to SQL database after installing DotNetNuke ver 4.4.1 (install)
I am using the SQLExpress database and have SQL Server Management Studio to
confirm the database.

My connection string looks like this...
connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|DotNetNuke1.mdf;"

Sometimes I get a error telling me DotNetNuke can not connect with this connection string
while at other times the error says the versioning differs between the assembly and the
database.  The SQL version is 9.1.2047.00.

I have been 2 days on this which includes a lot of research and came up with zip.
The DotNetNuke site does not seem to have good answers especially with install
problems like this one.

Anyway would appreciate some help.  Please note I can connect to the database
using Sql Server Management Studio.
