SQLEXPRESS on Vista x64 Beta 2

    I'm trying to add a databse to App_Data via Visual Studio 2005 under Vista x64 Beta 2. I get this error, "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."

    Poking around, I found this article, but it doesn't seem to help. I have deleted the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS folder and restarted, but when SQL Express starts back up, it recreates that folder and the error still occurs.

    sseutil -l produces the same error as well.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Update: Applying SP1 seems to have fixed the issue!
