How do I open up SQL Server Management Studio?
Assuming you have it installed ... Start | Programs | Microsoft SQL Server | SQL Server Management Studio.
There's an option to install the express version of it when you install DonorWise.
I am not clear on how to create my first DonorWise Database. I try to "Connect to Server" with Windows Authentication and without. If the latter, I use the username and password I created when I went through the installation process. Neither works. It is not clear from the instructions above just what I do in the SQL Server Management Studio (Express) to get things going. Can you give some more detail? Thanks---Matt
For your first database you create, you should probably un-check "Windows Authentication" and login using "sa" and the password you provided when installing SQL Server.
How I can restore the username and password for one Donorwise's Database ?
I have used all the variations of passwords, I used the one I initially set up the SQL with and nothing works. I do not see any option to change your password. Help? I would love to use this program as I already use TNT Connect.Frustrating to not see where or how to get it working.
As this article shows, you can often right-click on SQL Server Management Studio, "Run as Administrator", and then you can go into "Security" and "Logins" to change any password you want for any user.
