If you use visual studio you can add datasource in the data menu, there you can Test your connection, Visual studio will generate a valid connection string.It´s good to test cause if you are doing this over LAN you have to configure Server side software for it.

I can´t see any obvious error in your connection string.
Maybe you can try and change
"Initial Catalog="Database1.mdf;"
But that is just a guess.
