Web Site Administration Tool hangs

My Web Site Administration Tool hangs.  This is VS 2008.  I can click on "ASP.NET configuration" menu item in VS, but once I'm in the tools, clicking anywhere just hangs.  THis worked for me just a day ago, now it does not.   I re-installed  VS 2008, but that did not help.

Any ideas?

I have read some articles on this.  Is my data store corrupt?  Or do I need to configure one?  Also, since the data store is SQL Server, do I need SQL Server installed on my machine?

This was working yesterday, and then I installed SQL Server 2008 Express - and that did me in.  I uninstalled  SQL Server 2008 Express and then reinstalled Visual Studio 2008., but I still have the problem.

I think somewhere I am not configured correctly, and that the data store cannot be accessed.

check event log if you are getting any errors.
Also check if you are running VS as "Administrator"

What event log?  And how do I check to see if I am running VS as admin?  I just double click the icon on my desktop as always.  I see where I can run it as Admin, but the account I am logged in as is  in the Admin group.

Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Event Viewer
check under Applications

If it is standard VS 2008, you will need a Sql Server database(Express is fine).

there were events, but I delete all and then tried it again to see if an event was generated.  None were generated.

Yes, I need a SQL DB.  And that's the root of the problem, I believe.   As I said, VS Admin Tool was working yesterday, and then I installed SQL Server 2008 Express - and that did me in.  I uninstalled  SQL Server 2008 Express and then reinstalled Visual Studio 2008., but I still have the problem.

So, I need some version of SQL Server installed locally?

Yes.
But if you want to use external server, then you will have to manually run aspne_regsql.exe, which will install membership tables in your selected database. Then modify the connectionString in your web.config to use that database.
Something like shown here: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/08/25/423703.aspx

OK.  I think I'm making progress understanding.

When you I am using an external server, external to what? VS?    Does VS come with some built-in SQL Server engine that normally works with the Web Site Administration Tool?

And now that I installed SQL Server Express, I need to configure my project accordingly?
