Installing LINQPad

Just a quick observation that's hopefully useful to the author of this fantastic tool.
On my Windows 10 machine on installing LINQPad, v5.36.03, at the end of this process I select launch LINQPad now. All's well but I'm not offered .\SQLEXPRESS in the drop down list of LINQ to SQL Connection dialogue. I know that this service is running Ok, as evidenced by Task Manager, by SQL Server Management Studio & by my Visual Studio Entity Framework project. Strange?
I close LINQPad. The next day I try LINQPad & .\SQLEXPRESS is there!
Guess it's an instillation time one off nuisance issue. No big problomo.

  • The dropdown list is a MRU. So once you use a server successfully, it will offer it again in the list.
