I am setting up a new system to do some development testing. I installed SQL 2008 enterprise, and VS 2010. I then executed one of the new project scripts for a database application.
The wild thing is when the new project wizard browses for SQL databases to connect to, it sees two on other computers, but not the local server.
What step have I missed in sql or VS to allow it to see the local database server. Keep in mind I did not install sql express, since I had already installed a full copy.
So now I am stuck, and feeling really stupid.
I have noticed that the sql server agent does not start, I wonder if that is why it cannot be seen.
