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...
