I installed Visual Studio 2008 on a new Windows 8 computer and it failed, stating it could not install SQL Server.  Everything else seemed to install correctly.  I loaded a project that worked fine on an XP machine and when I start it, it gives me an error 26 when it tries openning the SQL database.  I found information on the web to delete a user.config file but that did not solve the problem.
