    am seeing my data base in my server explorer after adding the mdf file in the app_data ,  but when i give connect i get a error message stating

    " 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: Shared Memory Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)"

    Just because you have an MDF in your App_Data directory doesn't mean it'll work automagically.

     

    What's your connection string?
