I am upgrading an existing project using Enterprise library (an older version). The code is working but I don't really understand the connections so I looked for and found the sample application.

Unfortunately, the sample doesn't work. I keep getting the following error:

"Exception type System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException was thrown. Message: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connect 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 Interface, error:50 - Local Database Runtime error occurred. Cannot create an automatic instance. See the Windows Application event log for error details.); Source: '.Net SqlClient Data Provided' No Inner Exception.

So obviously the example app is not working. I am running VS 2015 update 3 and windows 7.

Did you run the setup script from RI-Installation.txt?
