SQL Server Express - No process is on the other end of the pipe

I'm trying to figure out what the problem is here.  I'm connecting on the same computer the SQL Server Express instance is installed on.  I don't need networking, I just want to login to the database.

I made sure named pipes was enabled, but I still get this error.
The image below shows the full dialog box

Error Connecting to local SQL Server Express
Any ideas?

thanks for your help!

I ended up creating a new SQL Server instance.  I created the other one yesterday, and I'm not sure what I did differently - but I can login with no issues.

Thanks anyway for your help.

Something during the installation was goofy... I don't know what else it could be...
