'jQuery' is undefined

Hello - I just downloaded this learning solution and decided to run the 'completed' solution but keep getting 'jQuery' errors. Am I missing something important to allow the solution to run without errors?

EDIT: Is it possibly related to the datasource? Solut6ion unzipped into the following folder: \MvcMusicStore-Completed\MvcMusicStore\App_Data\MvcMusicStore.sdf and the solution's connection string shows it's looking in a folder called "DataDirectory" does VS automatically translate this? :-)

    <add name="MusicStoreEntities"
     connectionString="Data Source=|DataDirectory|MvcMusicStore.sdf"

(Be nice, I AM as inexperienced as my questions reveals!)

The answer to this question for me was found at

This is because the version of jQuery was updated since the tutorial was last published. Make sure that the script reference in /Views/Shared/_Layout.cshtml matches the version of jQuery in your /Scripts folder, probably /Scripts/jquery-1.5.1.min.js.

For me, I changed "<script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery-1.4.4.min.js")" to <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery-1.7.1.js")" as this was the version of jquery I was running when I created the solution.

Good Luck,
