After four days of trying to get this application to do more than ltting a user create a login account, and not being able to administrate or connect to SQL server, it is time to move on and test other starter kits, this one gets an "I" for incomplete, and
an "F" for lack of documentaion the Forum is nice but it should be catagorized for issues. Programmers shoud test document thier solution and explain in detailed step by step procedures how to configure thier applications for database and ASPNET connectivity.

It sounds like you are having problems with connecting to the sql server.
If that isnt working for you then you arent going to get much further.
When i first started out I found that this area was lacking in tutorials and you were just supposed to figure it out for yourself.
If you have the free version of sql (sql express) you want to get hold of Sql Server Management Server Express which comes with the sql express + tools download on the essential downloads section of this website.
Well actually no, i just looked, but you can get it here
You should be able to setup your database then when you have this tool.
By default your server instance name will be .\SQLEXPRESS (well it is in sql express 2005 anyway - i havent upgraded to 2008 yet)
Good luck and post here if you are still have troubles!
