.NET Pet Shop 4.0 and Vista

My last post got me past the installer problem.  But I ran into a few more.  Here they are:

1) The install instructions say to just double click InstallDatabases.cmd to run it.  However, that didn't work correctly.  Open a cmd prompt, cd to that directory and run the cmd file from there.

2) Edit the web.config file.  Some settings are self explanatory, but make sure of the following:

<!-- SQL connection string for Profile database -->
<add name="SQLProfileConnString" connectionString="Server=(local);Database=MSPetShop4Profile;Trusted_Connection=true;Connect Timeoout=10" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
<!-- SQL connection string for Membership database -->
<add name="SQLMembershipConnString" connectionString="Server=(local);Database=MSPetShop4Services;Trusted_Connection=true;Connect Timeoout=10" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
<!-- SQL connection string for Inventory database lookup -->
<add name="SQLConnString1" connectionString="Server=(local);Database=MSPetShop4Orders;Trusted_Connection=true;Connect Timeoout=10" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
<!-- SQL connection string for handling transactions on the Inventory database-->
<add name="SQLConnString2" connectionString="Server=(local);Database=MSPetShop4Orders;Trusted_Connection=true;Connect Timeoout=10" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
<!-- SQL connection string for Orders database-->
<add name="SQLConnString3" connectionString="Server=(local);Database=MSPetShop4;Trusted_Connection=true;Connect Timeoout=10" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

3) Start the MDTC service.   If you don't, you'll receive an error during checkout.
