Question Restore DB

I am trying to restore a backup file (.bak) to my database, but I keep getting the following error:
Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ExecutionFailureException: An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: A transport-level error has occurred when receiving results from the server. (provider: Shared Memory Provider, error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.)

I'm using VS2008 (Visual Basic) connecting to SQL Express 2008

I can back the db up just fine, but on restore, it throws the error message

Here is the restore code:

Public Function Restore(ByVal dbName As String, ByVal path As String, ByVal uName As String, ByVal uPass As String) As Boolean

Dim copyGood As Boolean = False

Dim myServer As New Server
Dim aServer As Server
Dim bdi As BackupDeviceItem
Dim dOpts As DatabaseOptions

Dim myRestore As New Restore()
Dim currentDB As Database

'aServer = GetServer()

aServer = New Server(getServerNameFromConString())
myServer = GetServer()


currentDB = New Database(myServer, dbName)
dOpts = currentDB.DatabaseOptions()

myRestore.Database = dbName

If Not currentDB Is System.DBNull.Value Then
End If

bdi = New BackupDeviceItem(path & BACKUP_FILE, DeviceType.File)

myRestore.Devices.AddDevice(path & BACKUP_FILE, DeviceType.File)

Dim DataFileLocation As String = "C:\SSi\Data\" & dbName & ".mdf"
Dim LogFileLocation As String = "C:\SSi\Data\" & dbName & "_log.ldf"

myRestore.NoRecovery = False
myRestore.Action = RestoreActionType.Database
myRestore.ReplaceDatabase = True
myRestore.Checksum = True
myRestore.ContinueAfterError = True
myRestore.PercentCompleteNotification = 10

AddHandler myRestore.PercentComplete, AddressOf Restore_PercentComplete
AddHandler myRestore.Complete, AddressOf Restore_Complete

writeToErrorLogAndConsole("Restoring: " & dbName, "DATABASE RESTORE")

' Restore the database

currentDB = myServer.Databases(dbName)


copyGood = True
Catch ex As Exception
writeToErrorLogAndConsole(ex.ToString, "DATABASE RESTORE")
copyGood = False
End Try

Return copyGood

End Function

I'm not too familiar with the backup/restore functionality, so any help will be appreciated.
