Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 connecting to SQL SERVER 2008

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have been experiencing a problem with connecting to SQL SERVER 2008 (running on a Windows Server 2008 R2 enviroment) from Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 (running either on XP or Windows 7, both tested). Everytime i need to connect a or create a sqldatasource i get an error saying " This server version is not supported. You must have Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 or later". I first noticed that in the "New Connection" wizard on Visual Studio the database instance name is no longer giving me "MYSERVERNAME" but it is now giving me "MYSERVERNAME\SQLEXPRESS" which was not the case before. Please hel me with this as i have tried installing services packs but none of them work.
