ive set up a connection string and whenever the program hits myConnection.ConnectionString, it will appear such an error :
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: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
with saying SqlException was unhandled.
ive follow all instructions with the TCP, UDP. all of them are enabled already.
including all the firewall ports. sqlserver and sqlbrowser both are working properly as well.
thank u. appreciated. if u ned anymore detail, im most willing to provide it.
fyi, im using sqlexpress 2008 and visual studio 2008.
