VS 2005 Required components missing

Problem: Visual studio 2005 cannot connect to sql server express database. This is so boring problem... Here is a short summarize of similiar issue:

However my problem continued. The reason was that I have had installed Standard Edition of Sql Server 2005. When I installed SQL Server Express Edition I received the problem. The solution I found was so simple, I had to change database options of Visual Studio:
Tools -> Options -> Database Tools -> Data Connections. I changed SQL Server Instance Name to the new instance name (name of sql server express edition). This needed restart of Visual Studio. Now it works fine :-)
