I'm running full SQL Server 2005 and have noticed that the LDF file is no longer provided with the project files, the assumption being that SQLServer Express is used. Gather that full SQLServer and Express don't like residing on the same machine. Some tables (widget) have changed since the database was brought under the Web Site, is it possible for an LDF to be provided (or is there a way of generating one) ?

Many thanks,

I had the same problem. When attaching file via Management Studio  rename attach as to "dropthings" and remove ldf as a second file in the list of files ( it complains that ldf was not found ). After that  ldf  is re-created without errors.
