Telerik Skin – Custom And Modified - EnableEmbeddedSkins

Very good articles on Telerik and Custom skins. The key to use custom or modified skin is to set EnableEmbeddedSkins property to false. Without this setting Telerik will always use the skin files embedded in the Telerik.Web.UI.dll.How Skin Works - http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/howskinswork.htmlModifying built-in skins - http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/modifyingexistingskins.htmlCreating a custom skin - http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/createcustomskin.htmlRegister Skin on your page (Register the CSS file in your page) - http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/skinregistration.html. You can also use ASP.NET 2.x Theme mechanismby coping your custom skin folder in the App_Theme folder. In this case you don't need to manually register the CSS file of your custom skin when you are using ASP.NET themes. The framework will automatically register any CSS files found in the current theme folder (~/App_Themes/MyTheme).

Check comment by “Scott J Baldwin - Posted on Thursday, March 30, 2006 8:28:58 PM”.Main points from his reply: Delete C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS.

Remember to replace USERNAME with your username.
Also check if the SQL service account has the necessary permissions.
It is possible to attach to databases in the traditional by edit the connection string and delete the "user Instance=true". User Instances just make it easier (when it does work) to work with databases as though they were files.Thanks Scott J Baldwin.
