i freshly installed my OS (Vista) and web developer 2008 express (which comes with sql express)
When going to database explorer and try to add a connection, in the "Add connection" , there is no database appearing in the list of the "Server name".
Only when connecting on my network , i can see others people databases , but not mine.
I've checked from the SQL Server configuration and the server seems to run, as also the sql server browser.
Also checked the local/network service for the built in account and seems to be ok. i have it on windows authentication as well.
No error appearing somewhere so that i can get some kind of orientation .
Thank you in advance

In that dailog for Server Name type ./SQLEXPRESS
This is the typical name with which the SQL Express install. You can check the instance name in the Services under Administrative tools
