Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in copying database files. The con

I have spent the last 3 days attempting to solve this issue. I have combed with web and no solution has made any headway.

I was following the following tutorial to the letter:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/879kf95c.aspx

because I will be making something similar for the corporate website I manage.

Everything was going smoothly unit I attempted to test the application at which point I received the following error when I attempt to log in.

If anyone out there can help me, thank you so much.
