Undocumented SQLExpress Error when running "Patterns in Action"

I re-installed SQLExpress 2012 today and received the following when attempting to login to "Patterns in Action"

Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed.

You must remove the contents of the below path first, and then restart the application.

When restarting, SQLExpress will refresh the contents of the local server.

C:\Users\your_name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS
