I'm using C# Express and SQL Server Express. I can connect to sample databses I have downloaded to the default location (..\MMSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA) but I cannot connect to a new database I create using SQL Server. The error is "You don't have permission to open this file. Contact the owner or administrator to obtain permission". I'm the owner, of course.
I can create a new database directly in a C# project and put it together, but I cannot see it from SQL Server.
I can connect to Access databases without any problems.
Is this a limitation built into C# Express and SQL Explorer Express because they are essentially free samples, or am I missing something obvious?
