I'm getting the above-mentioned error when I try to access an MSDE database with *very* simple code. Here's the entire ASP.NET page:

<%@ Page Language="VB" Debug="true" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data.SqlClient" %>
<Script Runat="Server">

Sub Page_Load
Dim conPubs As SqlConnection
conPubs = New SqlConnection("Server=localhost;uid=sa;pwd=secret;database=pubs")
conPubs.Open() <----- error occurs here
End Sub


Connection Opened!

I'm new to MSDE/SQL Server, and undoubtedly there is a very simple
solution. Suggestions are welcome....

btw: the subject was slightly should read:

"The system cannot find the file".
