I am getting the same error a few of the other folks here are getting, see below. I added NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE to the users list for the "Slickticket" db and put him in the owner role. The domain administrator account is the one that also has the owner role and that is the one I logged into the server with and SQL is using windows authentication. I tried to follow some of your other recomendations but they were vague to me and I could not follow along. If you could provide some step by step instructions that would be great. I appreciate your work and I cant wait to start using the program.

This is simply a SQL connection error.

I would assume that your connectionString is incorrect - the download is set up for a local SQLExpress Connection, which is likely not how you are using it.

I would need more information about your SQL setup and connectionstring before I can help out.  Possibly take a look at
