I'm trying to get sitefinity 3.7 running on my development machine, windows 7 ultimate, sql server express 2008. I'm getting the old
"A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)"
error. I noticed that my machine doesn't have the aspnet account so I gave IUSR account full rights to the App_Data directory but same error.
Thanks for the help.
