    Hi,

    I've addressed this issue before in this thread - Telerik's WPF controls don't initially support SQL Server Developer Edition (or other versions that don't support the user instance flag in connection strings).  I had forgotten about this issue when I downloaded the Q2 release, and was a little confused when I could get the demo to start without immediately crashing!  I know you don't have plans for native support of different SQL Server versions (which I still think would be nice), but I did see Hristo say in the other thread that "We will be shipping a .config file with the official version and the installer should handle the DB configuration for you."  I did see the .config file and just edited the settings through the property pages in Visual Studio.  However, the installer definitely messed up in configuring my database server.  Is there any chance that in future releases the installer will do this automatically?  It may seem like a small feature, but it would make your product seem a whole lot more professional if I didn't have to tweak the demo's configuration in order for it to run, and I'm sure everyone not using SQL Express would very much appreciate it :)  Let me know how feasible this might be for Q3!

    Thanks so much,

    UIdev

    Hello UIdev,

    So far, the controls in the WPF suite have no known issues with different versions of SQL servers.
    However, our QSF ( the desktop version of our demo application) depends on the presence of SQL Express. This is required only for the sample data used in the examples. Thank you for reporting this issue!

    I agree that having to manually configure the DB connection for the samples is frustrating.
    Improvement of the QSF installer is already in our schedule. I can not definitely promise it for Q3 but I 'll do my best for this feature to come with the upcoming facelift of  the QSF app along with some UX and performance improvements.

    We updated your Telerik points as per our EAP Program.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Pavel,

    Thanks so much for addressing this issue.  Oops, I did mean QSF - sorry for the confusion there!  I'm excited to hear about QSF improvements, and can't wait to see the future versions.

    Hehe thanks for the Telerik points as well - those are always welcome ;)

    Regards,

    UIdev
