Been playing on my workstation with VS2013, WebAPI, and code first technology.While trying to build a new database based on a tutorial I started to lose the ability to connect or it was intermittent.
Later I tried to connect ot several of my other databases and sometimes i can connect and sometimes I can't. Sometimes SSMS is trying to connect using Named Pipes even though I've specifically selected TCP/IP. It seems to be doing the same when using a custom app.
My guess is that somehow my libraries or possibly related entries in the registry are corrupt.
Is there a way to clean up or repair this issue?
Thanks in advance
