Hello-- I am new to the latest versions of VS. I haven't done much programming since C# first came out and it looks like there are tons of new stuff.
When installing the protal.
During the loading of the project it tries to connect to

What do I need to know about this? What is it? Do I need an account somewhere? Why is it needed? What is the purpose?

Second question:

I have SQL and VS Express on the machine I am trying to install the Portal on. So the readme file says to Change the connection strings inside the UnityCfg.xml file.

I'm guessing that means edit:

<instance name="connectionString" type="string"
          value="Data Source=localhost;Integrated Security=True;Initial Catalog=Portal; MultipleActiveResultSets=True" />
so i'm not sure what edits to make to connect to the local database I created.

I changed the data source to localhost.

Last issue:

When I compile and run the project I get a runtime error:

at line: section.Configure(Container); in the Global.asax.cs file
  • $exception {"The type name or alias PortalSecurityDbContext could not be resolved. Please check your configuration file and verify this type name."} System.Exception {System.InvalidOperationException}
I believe this is because I don't have the connection string correct.

Thank you.
