VB remembering connection string

I changed the MS SQL database, but the VB code is still connecting to the old one. It appears the VB is caching the connection string (or something like that). What is happening and how can I fix it?

The connection strings that you are using is pointing to the new one??
allelopathAuthor Commented:
No. I think what is happening is that it is being remembered somehow and so it is not getting a new string.

I thought maybe it was being stored in the registry. I found this line:
Data.Data.Current = New Data(Common.Settings.GetClientRegistryKey("MyProjectSQLConnectionString"), Nothing)

Open in new window

but I did a search in the registry on MyProjectSQLConnectionString and nothing came up.
What sort of project? Can you show us some more code?

It appears to be a registry key that exist only for the life of the application.
