I am trying to configure my new Windows 7 machine for ASP.NET development. When I set it up, I didn't install SQL Server Express, when I installed Visual Studio 2008. I didn't know, when I didn't install SQL Express, that it would have a negative effect
upon the ASP.NET Configuration in VS 2008. Now I would like to install SQL Express, so that I can get the ASP.NET Configuration working. Can I install SQL Server 2008 Express, or do I have to install SQL Server 2005 Express?

I'd install 2008 if it was me. Any databases you build with it can be targeted at 2005 if required.
