Has anyone had any problems getting this lab to work?

I have followed instructions closely, and when I try to run the app, using Debug | Start w/o Debugging, I do not see any drop down... instead I see a messagebox with a very long call stack and an "OK" button.

Please help!


Oh, btw. I did try to run the "finished" version of this lab to see if it worked, and if i could reverse-engineer where I might've gone wrong, but to no avail. I got the same thing as I described above....

Is there something I am missing???

What is the exact exception? Did you run the batch file that creates the "EntLibQuickStarts" database?

Ok... got it working now. Problem was the connection string in the app.config file- since I am not using SQLEXPRESS it had to be modified.
