I have been debugging my application for 6 months. Now, when I try to run it I am getting "under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections." My computer is not on a network.
I recently went from Visual Studio 2005 Express Edition to the Professional edition. I was still able to test my app after installing the Professional edition. One possibility is that SQL Service Pack 1 was installed today. My app worked before that, now it doesn't.
The problem is that the SQL Server is not started. I ran sseutil -L to start SQL, but, it could not start it. Look at attached screen capture of the SQL Server Configuration Manager.
