I have just started with ASP.NET and MS SQL programming.
I am currently following the steps listed in this tutorial
Using MS Visual Web Developer Express 2010 and SQL Server Express 2010
In Solution Explorer, I right clicked app_data, add an item, selected data, SQL server database, named it userdb.mdf.
Then I switched to Database Explorer and double clicked userdb.mdf and it was able to connect fine and as expected it listed the empty folders - Tables, Views etc.
Connection String property shows data source as .\SQLEXPRESS
Next I launched %WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Fra
I entered following details
Server : .\SQLEXPRESS
Selected "Windows Authentication"
Now when I try to select the DB from Database drop down, I do not see userdb. I only see master, model, msdb, and tempdb. What am I missing?
