Dreamweaver ASP.net create connection

I am creating my first ASP.net website.
I created my first page and now trying to connect to my database but i keep getting an error.

Attached is the screenshot of the error.

I dont know what I should check as far as making sure there is a testing server. I have classic ASP websites on the same machine and the websites run just fine, so in that sense this being an asp.net what do i have to check ?  

AND

the _mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.asp  does not exist inside my website, how is that created ?  it wasnt created when i tried creating the connection ... where does the file comes from ?

Something's not right here.  You got a 404 error trying to set up an OLEDB connection?  That doesn't make sense...

Ok ... we do know something is not right. I created the website like any other ASP classic website, is there something else i need to know ?
Also, it does not use an ODBC connection to connect to the database, as it appears .net connects directly somehow.

None of the above help. I actually found the folder above and it is in my root, so thats OK. The problem is that inside that folder the file:  MMHTTPDB.asp

Does not exist. How can I create such file ?
