The project runs fine with Line 12 below. But, with lines 9 and 11 it fails.

Question: Why line 9 is not reading the connection string? Is shows "nothing" via intelesens.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<connection>
Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS12;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\NORTHWND.MDF;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True
</connection>


Protected Shared Function GetNWConString() As String

Dim xmlReader As New XmlTextReader("csNorthwind.xml")

Return xmlReader.ReadElementString("connection")
'Return "Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS12;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\NORTHWND.MDF;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True"
End Function

Hi Saige,

I have typed it manually. I am not aware of utility that builds xml file like this.

"Copy if newer" did the rick. It was on "Do not copy".

Thanks,

When I checked "Copy to Output Directory" I notice it was on "Do not Copy".
