Visual Studio 2008 Pro Trial does work with SQL 2008 CTP Trial

Hello, first i've install Visual Studio 2008 Web edition with SQL 2008 CTP Trial. When i've try to connect a SQL databse in VS it's does not work. I saw a Path for VS 2008 (VS90-KB945855.exe) that allow you to connect with sql 2008 but it's only for Pro or Team editon. So i decide to install  VS Pro 2008 trial and run the path. Unfortunetly it's still don't work.

When i go in the "Server Explorer" and click on "Create or Add Connection" nothing appear in the dropdown list of server name. My SQL 2008 is well install and i can access it throw the SQL Management Studio..

Any way to connect SQL 2008 with VS 2008 Web Edition (Free version)?
Why using the patch it still not working with VS 2008 Pro and SQL 2008 CTP?

Thanks!

No error, simply that the "DropDown list" of server name is empty.
Here is my steps:
Step 1. Open Server Explorer
Step 2. Right click Data Connections and choose "Add connection..."
Step 3. Choosing the third option "Microsoft SQL Server" with SQL Server Data Provider
Step 4. In the data source it's: Microsoft SQL Server (SQLClient) and in the Server Name, the dropdown is empty.

Microsoft SQL Server Developer Edition, v.10.0.1300 CTP
Visual Studio Professional Edition (90 trials), Version. 9.0.21022.8 RTM.

Every products has been downloaded and install Sunday 09 mars.
