MVC Movie App tutorial : Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed

I got another problem when I work with MVC Movie App tutorial provided by Microsoft Asp.Net site.
I just go through the step by step. But unfortunately I stuck at one point. Once I build the solution and press F5, and I tried to go to the following url. But it says “Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed.”

I tried several options and found good solution at this url.

What I did was just replace the connection string given by that url with my connection string. It works perfectly now….

How to change debugging browser used in VS 2010 , MVC 3

Recently I have work with Asp MVC 3 and had a problem with changing my default Brower from Firefox to IE.

In Asp.NET it is possible with “browse with” option. See more details on ScottGu’s blog.
But in MVC project we don’t have any aspx files, so how to configure our solution to do it so?
There is a way to do this.

1. Right click on solution and go to the “Properties”
2. Go to “Web” Tab
3. Set the Start Action to use Start external program and then pass the Internet Explorer executable path and the url as Command line arguments.
4. Set the Servers’ specific port to the same port set in the url in step 3.
See the following image to get more info.
