I just tested the installation on a 64-bit Vista machine, and everything seems to be working fine. Here are the steps to manually set up the database that the examples use:
- Attach the DataSources\Northwind.mdf database to your SQL Server instance. In my case I named it NorthwindManual. See the SQLServer_attach.png screenshot.
- Modify your connection string in your Telerik.Windows.Examples.exe.config file. In my case the correct value is: Data Source=VISTA64\REPORTING;Database=NorthwindManual;Integrated Security=True. See the config_file.png screenshot.
If everything is fine, and the SQL Server is available, the examples should run fine. Check the GridView_running.png
By looking at your error log, I assume there is a problem when connecting to the SQL server. Can you paste your connection string and double check that it is valid?
