The Database Explorer Window won't open. I tried the following:
2) View->Database Explorer (from the top menubar)
3) Tools->Connect to Database (from the top menubar)
None of them would bring up the database explorer window.
So, I went to Add/Remove Programs and Repaired Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition.
The problem still remained.
Then I uninstalled Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition completely and re-installed a fresh copy.
But the Database Explorer Window was still not accessible.
The application connects to the database without any problems...but I just can't see it. I can't manage tables etc.
I tried creating a new User profile in WinXP. When I login through the new user profile, the database explorer window is displayed without any problems.
I also tried getting Visual Studio Express 2008 SP1 settings from another computer for my Visual Studio Express 2008 SP1. Even after importing the settings from a different computer...the database explorer window still won't open.
This indicates (to me) that there is some setting related to my user profile which got messed up.
Can you provide an alternate or a fix ?
