Connecting asp.net web app to SQL database
Posted on 2008-01-30
I am configuring my first membership site in Visual Studio 2005 (c#).
I have separately created a database in MS SQL 2005 and then ran the config wizard (aspnet_regsql.exe) to set up all of the tables and processes etc.
I then successfully connected my new site to this database and the web.config file looks good.
However, when I launch the asp.net configuration wizard from within Visual Studio to create users, roles, etc. it still wants to create the aspnetdb.mdb file.
Am I missing something here? How do I make the asp.net config wizard see the real SQL database (I am not interested in using Express since I have the full edition)?
I have examined many articles and tried the advanced link. But I am oviously missing something.
