Do the following thing, it may help you if your connection string is wrong.
In Visual Studio, View -> Server Explorer, than right click on Data Connections & make new connection.
Try connecting & adding your database there in server explorer. Once you have successfully connected the database than you can right click on database(of course in server explorer) & view properties. There you can find the correct "Connection String" for your application.
