I recently added the Advanced version of SQL Express to my computer in order to add full text search functionality to an app.  Once I installed the version, I was no longer able to login or connect to my data base file because of a User Instance Disabled error.

When I try to connect in the database explorer of Visual Studio I get.
Generating user instances in SQL Server is disabled. Use sp_configure 'user instances enabled' to generate user instances.

When I go to Website config menu I get.
There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.

 Full text search is in compatible with user instances.  Is there some way I can use both SQL Express versions on my computer at the same time or have I over looked something else?
