Patterns in Action - not working


I just bought your design pattern framework 4.0. When I try to  run the Patterns in Action project, I get the below error.

{"The database 'C:\\DOFACTORY PATTERNS 4.0 CS\\PATTERNS IN ACTION\\HOST.WCF.ACTIONSERVER\\APP_DATA\\ACTION.MDF' cannot be opened because it is version 655. This server supports version 612 and earlier. A downgrade path is not supported.\r\nCould not open new database 'C:\\DOFACTORY PATTERNS 4.0 CS\\PATTERNS IN ACTION\\HOST.WCF.ACTIONSERVER\\APP_DATA\\ACTION.MDF'. CREATE DATABASE is aborted.\r\nAn attempt to attach an auto-named database for file C:\\DoFactory Patterns 4.0 CS\\Patterns In Action\\Host.WCF.ActionServer\\App_Data\\Action.mdf failed. A database with the same name exists, or specified file cannot be opened, or it is located on UNC share."}

I appreciate your help.

It's saying that the version of SQL Server you are running is an older version. I believe 655 is SQL Server 2008, so running SQL Server 2008 Express edition should take care of it.
