The Kendo UI Music Store Dashboard demo application uses an SQL Server database with sample data for artists, albums, orders, etc.
To populate the sample database, the application uses Entity Framework Code First migrations to create the database and seed the sample data. The migrations are configured to only run in the
Debug mode. If you run it in the
Release mode, the code assumes that the database is already created and does not try to create or seed the data.
The connection string configured in the
web.config file is set to use
LocalDB and will connect to a local database file in the
LocalDB requires an SQL Server 2012 or later.
To run the Kendo UI Music Store Dashboard demo, make sure your system meets these requirements or change the connection string to use an SQL Server instance available on your computer.
