DataSource Controls :: ODBC SQL Connection To Connect A SQL 2005 Database To .NET App In Visual Web Developer Express?

Jun 15, 2010

I'm using an ODBC connection to connect a SQL 2005 database to my ASP.NET app in Visual Web Developer Express. I'm finding that the expected functionality that tutorials review does not work for ODBC connected databases the same way as it does for SQL databases created in the Web Developer. For example, I can't use stored procedures because the option to create one is disabled in the Web Developer, and if I create the stored procedure in SQL Server Management Studio Express, it doesn't show up in Web Developer because Web Developer only finds the system stored procedures, not the user-defined ones. I've seen other cases as well where database management options in Web Developer don't work with ODBC databases.

Am I missing something in my setup, or is there an inherent limitation with ODBC connected databases? Or, is this a limitation with using the Express versions of these development tools?

Embarrassed that I'm stuck on this I've downlaoded sqlserver express 2008 R2 and VS web developer 2010. Set up a databse wrote a mini test site and am now trying to connect to my database to fetch records back. However i'm getting the error message "Invalid object name 'customer'."

How To Connect To Sql Server Developer Instead Of Sql Express

Oct 22, 2010

I have a ASP project that I have done before and it was working fine with SQL Serve Express 2005. After formatting my PC, I installed first VS 2008 Pro and then SQL Server Developer 2008 and I'm testing on my laptop but I can't connect to database. After reading a couple of articles I knew that I can't use mdf file because I'm using SQL Developer so it needs another procedure to follow such as changing the parameters in Web.Config

<add name="Connection" connectionString="Data Source=.SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|Store.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

I tried a lot of soultion like start SQL browser Service to be on but still didn't work, also I tried to change the instance name in VS in options but also didn't work with me.

SQL Server :: SSMS Express Cannot Connect To SQL CE4 Sdf FIle

Feb 8, 2011

I am playing around with WebMatrix ans SQL CE 4.0. I wanted to load up a SQL CE V4.0 db from an Access db.

Tried to connect SSMS Exp to SQL 4.0 sdf file (created in WebMatrix starter site template) and was rejected with the following error that SSMS Express is not yet "aware" of SQL CE V4.0):

Cannot connect to C:Users....App_DataStarterSite.sdf.

This is not a valid SQL Server Compact Database file or this file version is not supported by current SQL Server Compact Engine. (SQL Server Compact ADO.NET Data Provider)


The sdf file is "a valid SQL Server Compact Database file" - it works fine in WebMatrix.

What do I need to do to make SQL CE 4.0 files kosher for SSMS Express? The error messages suggest that I need to update the SQL Server Compact ADO.NET Data Provider, however I might do that.

Configuration :: Connect VWD 2010 Express To SQL Server 2000

Oct 12, 2010

I'm using MS Visual Web Developer 2010 Express to build a website that connects to a SQL server 2000 database. Is it possible to connect to SQL 2000 using providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"? I'm guessing not. Or am I limited to using providerName="System.Data.OleDb" ? And seems both connections are under this ADO.NET umbrella. confirm one way or the other ... I'm a bit confused.

From web.config:

<add name="SubscrTypeConnectionString" connectionString="Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=my-server-host;Persist Security Info=True;Password=123abcde;User ID=test;Initial Catalog=Apps"
providerName="System.Data.OleDb" />

So I believe I need to use OleDbCommand calls. I've seen many examples to do gridview select/edit/delete using SqlClient but not OleDb calls in VB code. Links to sample code would be great.

Visual Studio :: Unable To Connect To SQL Server 2005 Express

Mar 28, 2010

I recently purchased a new computer running Windows 7 Home, and after installing Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005 Express, I am unable to connect to the database using the "Connect To Database" wizard. I get the following error:

"This server version is not supported. You must have Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 or later."

The version of SQL Server 2005 Express I've downloaded is directly from the Microsoft site and I also downloaded the SP3 to be used with Windows 7, x64 (which I presumed was a later version of the database). I am able to connect to the database programatically, but I would like to get the wizard functionality working as well (as I am unable to add a database to my projects, using the "Add New Item" wizard either).

When I deploy my website to a remote web host SQL server, I need for my web pages to be able to use the remote database instead of the local database.

DataSource Controls :: SQL Server Engine Cannot Connect To Instance Of SQL Server

Jun 22, 2010

I just ran a project that I've been working on and the project couldn't connect to the sql server engine. This project worked fine yesterday. This morning I installed the new Adobe Flash player 10.0. That's the only thing that's changed sine I last worked with my project.

I got an exception for the sql server error when I run my app. This is the exception from the app:

Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections.

I tried to connect to the engine with the ssms but couldn't connect that way either. This gave me an error that said:TITLE: Connect to Server

DataSource Controls :: Unable To Connect To Local SQL Server - Named Pipes Error, Server Is Not Listening On Shared Memory?...

Mar 23, 2010

I am unable to connect to my local instance of SQL Server 2008 Express using SQL Server Management Studio.I believe the problem is related to a change I made to the connection protocols. Before the error occurred, I had Shared Memory enabled and Named Pipes and TCP/IP disabled. I then enabled both Named Pipes and TCP/IP, and this is when I started experiencing the problem.

I have now set Named Pipes and TCP/IP back to disabled. When I try to connect to the server with SSMS (with either my SQL server sysadmin login or with windows authentication), I get the following error message:

"A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 233)"

My first question here is: why is it returning a Named Pipes error? Why isn't it using Shared Memory? It seems like it is not listening on Shared Memory for some reason?When I set Named Pipes to enabled and try to connect, I get the same error message.My windows account is does not have administrator priviliges on my computer.

DataSource Controls :: Can't Connect To Instance On Server With IIS 6.0

Mar 17, 2010

I'm running SQL Express 2005 on an SBS 2003 Standard Server and I keep getting this error back.A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 28 - Server doesn't support requested protocol)

I've uploaded my project to this same server, and I've so far checked that TCP/IP has been enabled for this instance, I've checked the IPs are relevant, I've checked that the connection string is correct, and I've even set a dynamic port number as I've noticed that SBS runs 2005 databases for Sharepoint and Monitoring.

Interestingly enough, I can connect to this instance via Visual Studio on my remote machine, and SSMSE and also via SSMSE on the server as well?The connection string i'm running with is:

Data Source=localhostVDSSQL;Initial Catalog=myDB;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=SA;Password=***

DataSource Controls :: Installing SQL Server Express 2008

Apr 1, 2010

I have been attempting to install sql server express 2008 but have come across problems. I downloaded it via web platform installer and it ran the install process, and I thought this would be it, but then upon creating some wizard log in controls on a website they won't work because its not installed. Then i relised I can't actually run the program, only some of its features. I then found the Installation centre and thought, oh I haven't actually installed it yet, and when I select new SQL server stand-alone installation or add features, instead of going through the process like it states on tutorials for installs, it asks me to browse for installation media, which I do not have because I downloaded the express edition.

DataSource Controls :: How To Install Sql Server Express 2008

Mar 29, 2010

I used that Microsoft Windows installer and installed visual web developer 2008 express and sql server 2008 so I thought. visual web developer works find.

When I look at sql server 2008 all I see is import export data link.

and the configuration tools.

In the configuration tools I see the following:

sql server configuration manager.
sql server error and usage reporting
sql server installation center.

So I figure sql server 2008 was not fully installed.d

I open the installation center and went to system configuration checker but I get a dialog

box that say browse for sql server 2008 installation media.
