I am having issues trying to get composer to recognize the DSN for the view composer databse I created.

I am doing a stand alone view composer. I installed SQL 2008 Express on this box and I have created the System DSN. Tested successfully.

" The database cannot be found or a connection can not be established. Check the DSN name to ensire that it is correctly entered."
