SQl LocalDB MSSQLLOCALDB stopped working. I have a vb.net program that has been running for months on a windows 10 4gb ram i5 laptop. For some strange reason, it can no longer connect to the local database on that machine.
What i have tried.
Using the sql utility i went to a command promt checked if MSSQLLOCALDB was there(it was) i stopped the instance, restarted the instance, still doesn't work
I then deleted the instance recreated it it again showed up (sqllocaldb i) when i try to start it i get an error message that says That sql cannot connect start fails.
I then deleted SQl Localdb from the control panel and reloaded it. Again shows up won't start.
i have searched and tried as many ideas found on the internet as i could. I also cannot find the localDB in SSMS. If i type it in the connect box it doesn't find it.
