I'm using VB.Net to run a program that connects to a SQL Server Express database.
My connection string is this:
Public Const LocalDB As String = "User ID=sa;Password=*******;Initial Catalog=tempOrders;Data Source=v7p\SQLEXPRESS"

Here is the error message I'm getting.  orderr_trans_error.jpg
This program has been running all day and only stopped about an hour ago.  
Nothing was changed on our system as far as we can tell - and no code was changed in the VB.Net program.

Any suggestions on things we can try?  This problem happend a couple of days ago - and after a few hours it started working.  Very odd.

I can access the database using the credentials I have using Management Studio.

Any help or suggestions you have will be appreciated!

Thank you!
