trouble running security block quickstart

I am running windows xp pro without IIS activated. I want to use the authentication facility for a winform application
when trying to run the quickstart for the security application block i get an error about not being able to open aspnetdb. I run aspnet_regsql.exe utility but did not fix the problem
nobody even mention this so i must be doing something really dumb.
what should i look at to fix the problem?
Thank you

Do you get the same error after running aspnet_regsql.exe? Can you provide details about your exception message and the stack trace?

IIS shouldn't be necessary for the quick start to work. I'd try connecting to the aspnetdb usign the connection string in your configuration file; you can do it from the entlib configuration editor by selecting the connection string and click on the ... button on the connection string property.

Make sure you create the aspnet db in the right server. It should be .\sqlexpress.

I solved the problem using the whole path for the aspnetdb file
