iam getting the following error msg

ERROR: There was a SQL error during setup. View the error message below and then Click Here to try again.

System.Data.Odbc.OdbcException: ERROR [08001] [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not exist or access denied. ERROR [01000] [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]ConnectionOpen (Connect()). at System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection.HandleError(OdbcHandle hrHandle, RetCode retcode) at System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnectionHandle..ctor(OdbcConnection connection, OdbcConnectionString constr, OdbcEnvironmentHandle environmentHandle) at System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnectionFactory.CreateConnection(DbConnectionOptions options, Object poolGroupProviderInfo, DbConnectionPool pool, DbConnection owningObject) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionFactory.CreateNonPooledConnection(DbConnection owningConnection, DbConnectionPoolGroup poolGroup) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionFactory.GetConnection(DbConnection owningConnection) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionClosed.OpenConnection(DbConnection outerConnection, DbConnectionFactory connectionFactory) at System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection.Open() at DMGForums.Global.Database.Read(String strSql, Int32 Rows) at DMGForums.Setup.SQLSetup.Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

my webconfig file looks like this:

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<compilation defaultLanguage="VB" debug="false" />
<!--<pages validateRequest="false" />-->

<add key="DatabaseString" value="Driver={SQL Server};Server=localhost\SQLEXPRESS;Database=mk;Uid=andrej;Pwd=#####" />
<!-- Comment the SQL connection string and uncomment the two lines below for MySQL -->
<!-- <add key="DatabaseType" value="MySQL" /> -->
<add key="DatabasePrefix" value="DMG" />
<add key="LongDateFormat" value="MMMM d, yyyy" />
<add key="ShortDateFormat" value="M/d/yyyy" />
<add key="DateTimeFormat" value="M/d/yyyy h:mm:ss tt" />


any ideas?

According to the error, the web page is unable to connect to localhost\SQLEXPRESS with this username and password. Something is setup wrong with the database. The software appears to be working as long as you are now seeing that message. At least you have gotten past your IIS errors.

i have found that i can connect through visual studio 2005 the connection string there is Data Source=DESKTOP-BD68465\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=mk2;Integrated Security=True

the connection string in web.config file is <add key="DatabaseString" value="Driver={SQL Server};Server=localhost\SQLEXPRESS;Database=mk2;Integrated Security=True;Uid=loginname;Pwd=password;"/>

can you tell me what is going wrong?

You don't need a UID and PWD in the connection string if you are using integrated security. You probably will need to set your web.config connection string to something like this.

<add key="DatabaseString" value="Driver={SQL Server};Server=DESKTOP-BD68465\SQLEXPRESS;Database=mk2;Trusted_Connection=yes;"/>

However, once you put this over the web you will want to have a username and password assigned to have access to the database. In that case you will use this.

<add key="DatabaseString" value="Driver={SQL Server};Server=DESKTOP-BD68465\SQLEXPRESS;Database=mk2;Uid=YOUR_USERNAME;Pwd=YOUR_PASSWORD;"/>
