    Assuming the Starter Kits reappear at some point, will it be possible to get them running using SQL Server (as opposed to SQLEXPRESS).

    Hey Stuart,

    It's possible even with the old starter kits.  In a nutshell, you'll need to use SQL Server Management Studio (there is an Express/free version) to attach the MDF database that sits in ~/App_Data.  Once attached, you can use SQL Server Manager Studio's export options to transition the schema & data to a *real* SQL Server.

    Let me know if these instructions aren't helpful.  I can probably blog this procedure or record a video.

    P.S.  I've heard talk about us shipping scripts with future SDK's so they are less tied to a specific type/version of database.  As it stands, it's a pain for you to convert and it's a pain for us to create something that is easily consumable for customers.  However, I don't have an ETA on this.

    Gabe,

    Thanks for that. I should have been able to work that out for myself, but...

    Creating a short video and, perhaps, getting it on Telerik TV might be a Good Thing though.
