Sites created from the VS extension can't find the database


Every time I create a new Episerver project from the Visual Studio extension, the resulting site fails with this:

The system cannot find the file specified

It happens during the attempted SQL connection.  The SQL driver can't find the MDF file sitting in App_Data.

I have jacked around the with connection string every which way I can think of.  Permissions too.  Nothing changes.

I'm wondering if it has something to do with the installed version of SQL Express.  I'm running 2014 SP1.

Anyone else found or solved this problem?

I installed SQL 2016 Express.  That didn't change anything.
