What version of SQL Server are you using?

Did you install SQL Express, or a full version?

If a Full Version, did you choose "mixed mode" authentication when installing it, or Windows Auth?

At first i already had :Microsoft SQL Server 2016 (CTP2.3) - 13.0.500.53 (X64) Express Edition (64-bit) ,
than i though there might be a problem with this sql version than i installed :Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (SP2) - 10.50.4000.0 (X64) Express Edition (64-bit) .
i am using Windows 10 . i do'nt remember what i chose during installation but as you can see it is the express editions.
Thanx

when installing SQL Server, you need to select mixed authentication.
After creating a blank database, you need to create a SQL Server account, map as database user and grant dbowner permission to this account.
