Hi;

My SqlConnection is causing an error "sqlConn.ServerVersion threw an exception of type System.InvalidOperationException".

<add key="MSSQLConnectionString" value="Server=aa.bb.cc.dd\server,1433;Database=Mydb;User ID=Foo;Password=Baz;Trusted_Connection=False"/>

Open in new window


And the code gives this error is as follows:

 con = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["MSSQLConnectionString"]);
                con.Open();

Open in new window


What to do?

Regards.
