I'm using SQL Server 2008 Express and Visual Studio 2010 Express.
In Chapter 1 of your book you ask us to create a New Connection to the MySample database. I have run the DBScript and succesfully created the MySample database in SQL Server. However when I try to establish a connection in VB 2010 Express there is no option to connect to SQL Server 2008 at all in the drop down list on "Choose Data Source" dialog box. The only options are SQL Server Compact 3.5, SQL Server Database File and Acess Database File.
Please help as I cant even get started on this book now that I'm stuck right at the beginning of chapter 1.
