I have an ASP.net application that uses authentication that was working great with SQL Express 2005 and I tried upgrading to 2008. I uninstalled SQL 2005 and installed SQL 2008 and now I get the error below:
I tried deleting the directory
:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS directory, but that did not help.
Server Error in '/Admin' Application.
Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed.
Thank you for not trying to start an argument.
