    I thought I would check out the contents of SiteFinity.mdf since attaching it to my SQL Server database (discountasp.net) would overlay the entire contents.  Should I ignore SiteFinity.mdf and just use the database I created that is in SqlExpress?  Seems to have all the telerik stuff in there.

    However, when I attempt to connect to it (attach) I got an error referencing a developer's path at Telerik:

    TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express
    ------------------------------

    Attach database failed for Server 'JOHN-VM\SQLEXPRESS'.  (Microsoft.SqlServer.Express.Smo)

    Hi John White,

    Try attaching the database without the error log. Also, you should be able to change the MDF File location, Attach As and Current File Path properties from SQL Management Studio or another tool that your host uses.

    Kind regards,

    Figured out how to attach the MDF without a log file, seems empty.  Just junk from the install I guess.
