    I am unable to install SQL Server Express 2005 on my laptop. I can find tons of references to others having the same issue...but no solutions work for me. I get the error: Setup has detected incompatible components from beta version of Visual Studio, .NET Framwork or SQL Server 2005...... I have no beta versions of anything installed.

I've build a web application on a Windows XP computer that has SQL Server 
Express edition installed on it.  I then copied the web application to a 
Windows 2003 Server box.  When trying to run the application an error occurs: 

provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance 

Why does this error exist and how can it be fixed?

Where is SQL Express installed?

IF still on your XP, then check the XP firewall settings.

The connection string is:

<add name="ASPNETDBConnectionString" connectionString="Data 
Security=True;User Instance=True"
         providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

Data source needs to be SQLServerBox\SQLEXPRESS
You are using just .\SQLEXPRESS so it's going to look for
SQL Server locally - on the IIS box. If you just copied the
web site to another server and Express, the databases are
still on the other box, that indicates it is likely not
pointing to the correct server. 
If you didn't change anything from the defaults on the box
where Express is installed, you will also need to enable
remote connections and make sure the browser service is
And finally, if windows firewall is running on the XP box
where Express is installed, add an exception for

This is a multi-part message in MIME format

I am new to setting up the server side and also get the same error.
When the connection string is added, do I need to also add the following
<remove name="LocalSqlServer"/>

Okay, I'm 18 hours into this now and am at a loss.  What I've done is create 
an application on my local workstation using VWD Express using the 
membership/roles provider and SQL Server Express configured for local 
authentication.  I have an aspnetdb database in my app_data folder configured 
with several users.  Everything works fine when I run the application from my 

I've tried several attempts to copy the app to my w23k server running sql 
express and can't get it to run.  I've created a virtual directory and 
configured it to run ASP.NET 2.0.  Then I've copied the files, including the 
aspnetdb files and I still can not login.  I've tried using the aspnet_reqsql 
tool, but all that does is give me another aspnetdb database without any 
information in it.

I've read about changing connection strings, application names, and changing 
the account the database runs in from the NETWORK SERVICE ACCOUNT.  I still 
don't understand a lot of this.  I'm primarily a sysadmin that's had to write 
this application due to our vendor not being responsive.  It's a simple app 
that uses the membership/roles login features of ASP.NET 2.0 and some data 
controls to allow various users the ability to view information from our 

I have complete control over the web server and can reinstall everything, 
including the OS if need be.  Heck I reinstalled SQL EXPRESS two times today.

I'm looking for a step by step article, whitepaper, etc. on how to deploy a 
VWD Express application that uses the membership/roles features in ASP.NET 
2.0 and SQL Server Express 2005 with Windows Authentication to a Windows 2003 
Server that has a default installation of SQL Server Express 2005 on it.

I can change primarily anything on the server, build it from scratch, 
install anything on it.  I just need to transfer my application to run on it.

It runs fine from the workstation.

Any help or links to such information would be most helpful.

3.deploy application with sql server express database

Hi there

I had no luck in getting the following question answered in the SQL Server 
newsgroups. Please point me in the right direction.

Background: I am using the "System.Data.SqlClient" namespace and a
SqlConnection() object to connect to a local SQL Server 2005 Express
database from within VB code contained in <SCRIPT /> tags in an ASP.NET
page. I use Windows authentication (ie. "Integrated Security=SSPI;") to
connect to the database, and Windows then uses the (local)\ASPNET account to
make a connection.

Problem: Every week there is a new database to attach. Making use of the
XCopy functionality with AutoClose enabled, I simply delete the old .mdf
file, copy the new .mdf file to that directory, and then let the
"AttachDBFilename=..." part of the connection string attach the database.
The problem is, the database file I want to attach is created on a different
SQL Server, and as such does not contain login and permissions for the local
machine's ASPNET user account. At present I am manually adding the login
(exec sp_grantlogin '(local)\ASPNET') and user (exec sp_grantdbaccess
'(local)\ASPNET') each time I attach a new database. Surely there must be an
automatic way?! I can but I'd prefer not to give the ASPNET account login
and database access from the SQL Server that I use to create the databases,
since that would mean keeping track of the various user, machine and network
names, which would be a nightmare.

Please help!

Best regards

4.How to deploy a database on SQL Server Express 2005

5.Recommended Approach for deploying SQL Server Express with shrink wrap software

I'm an ISV, and currently the main "shrink wrap" application that I develop 
uses MS JET 4.0 as the backend database.  My application's "document" is 
just an mdb file (with a file extension that is associated with my app). 
Deployment is quite simple, and from my users' perspective it's completely 
transparent.  Most have no idea that I'm using a database engine or what 
database engine I'm using under the covers.  For the most part, life is 
good, and I hesitate to leave this simplicity.

But for a few reasons I'm strongly considering switching my main "shrink 
wrap" application to use SQL Server 2005.  I really like many of the new 
features, especially CLR in the database, and merge replication over https. 
I've developed SQL Server apps for enterprise type of deployments, where one 
can assume that there will be IT staff to take care of getting SQL Server up 
and running, etc.  But for my "shrink wrap" application used by the masses, 
I can make no such assumption.  Most of my users probably haven't even heard 
about SQL Server, nor should they have to.

So here's my dilemma.  During the *default* installation of my application 
where the average user just presses "Next", "Next", "Next", "Install", 
"Done" (advanced settings would allow complete control), do I just install 
SQL Server Express, creating my own instance, if my own named instance 
doesn't already exist?  What about the 16 instance limit?  If everybody did 
this, we'd hit the 16 instance limit pretty quickly.  And wouldn't there be 
performance issues with each application using their own named instance?  Or 
should I just use an existing instance, if one exists?

What is the recommended approach for installing and using SQL Server Express 
as a true JET replacement.  (The answer can not require that the average 
user be forced to make any decision requiring knowledge of SQL
