I followed Shaun's Starter Kit and Templates instructions in this post and managed to get the solution build and run the first time, the install completed succesfully. When I then open my browser and point to http:\\localhost\dotnetnuke I get and error opening
the database (database.mdb as per instructions).
When I run SQL Express Management Studio the databse doesn't appear either although I can view it via Visual Web Developer.
I've checked the web.config connection string and it looks OK.
What is it I'm doing wrong?

The error I get is:
ERROR: Could not connect to database specified in connectionString for SqlDataProviderSystem.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Cannot open user default database. Login failed. Login failed for user 'XPC\ASPNET'
A permissions issue with SQL 2005 Express after following the instructions. Please Help.

I'm having the same problem ('cannot open user default database. Login failed for PcName/UserName').
Initially, I was able to create a database using the Database Explorer and its 'Add Connection' and create a table and a stored procedure and execute it -- it all went well.
Then it went badly and very,very badly. I added the connection info and database to the web file and then I started getting the message in previous paragraph.
I reinstalled VWD Express 2005 and SQL Server Management Express CTP. Now, when I try to connect, using CTP, as (local)\SQLEXPRESS I get the same message as mentioned in the first paragraph.
I've been working this for three days and am at my wits end. It can't be this complicated. I'm about ready to abandon this and upgrade my VS and SQL Server...
I'd appreciate any help.

Hi i'm having some problems with the 4.0.2 Starter Kit.
I've installed it and then opened VS2005. When i go to File->New Web Site or File->New APP it just freeze for ever ?? Does anyone know why ? Is this version working or must i get the 4.0.1 version.

Sorry never mind the previous post. After 15minutes [:O] and a tea the template finally appeared.
Wonder what was going on !

Good evening again,
I've tried all of the various proposed solutions and none of them worked for me.
I know that this is 'freebie' software, but is it possible to escalate this problem to Microsoft...
I'm going to reinstall VWD and delete or rename all my projects (what a loss)...
If that doesn't work (and I've tried it once before) I'm going to upgrade my VS to VS 2005 and SQL Server 2005.
It just can't be this hard...
