Connection to Default Instance of SQL Server 2016 LocalDB
I was able to solve the problem by removing the alias for MSSQLLocalDB in both 32 and 64 bit versions of cliconfg.exe. Server name was: (LocalDB)MSSQLLocalDB and pipe name was (localdb)MSSQLLocalDB. The alias may have been created during the installation of a previous version of Visual Studio. I noticed that the Windows 7 machine did not have this alias. Hope this helps someone else with similar problem.
