Solution 1

|DataDirectory| is the pat in web structure, like ASP.NET
so it appears like ..\App_Data\abc.mdf
Instead of it you must during installation process change it to real DB path!
Also i'm not sure about .\SQLEXPRESS , do you really sure about it existance on remote machine ??

Add prerequisite "SQL SERVER EXPRESS" in setup
Add abc.mdf file in setup
make sure abc.mdf is in same folder where your EXE file is placed after installation.

Happy Coding!

I need the error information.

1.You cant try change the reative address to absolute address.
2.Check, whether the connection is available
3.You should login it by sql server type rather than windows type.
4.You can load the mdf into mssql,then use it.

Just try it!
