5. Check the database connection string

To develop applications for ASP.NET you would need Database server. It might be SQL, MYSQL or some NO-Relational database server. Here are a couple of examples using SQL server

If you have isntalled SQLEXPRESS, add this is your web.config file
connectionString='Data Source=.\SqlExpress;Initial Catalog=CarsApp;Integrated Security=True'
If you have isntalled the regular SQL, add this is your web.config file
connectionString='Data Source=.\;Initial Catalog=CarsApp;Integrated Security=True'
For more information about the connection strings check this: www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server

Set your {AppName}.Web project as default and run it.
