After you install AppStudio, you can log in for the first time. For more information, see Logging in to AppStudio.

Remember, your login name and password for AppStudio must match the login name and password of a Microsoft SQL Server user with owner permissions on the configuration database. For more information on setting up the configuration database, see Installing the Configuration Database.

    • Always connect using these settings: Leave unchecked for now.
    • Server Name: The name of the server hosting the Microsoft SQL Server that contains the configuration database. This value depends on how SQL Server is configured. For example, it could be just the machine name hosting SQL Server, such as localhost or Or, you might have to include the full server instance name, such as localhost\SQLEXPRESS.
    • Integrated Security: If unchecked, the Login Name and Password fields correspond to a username and password for the Microsoft SQL Server hosting the configuration database. If checked, the Login Name and Password fields are disabled and AppStudio uses the Windows Credentials of the AppStudio user to connect to the configuration database. 
    • Login Name: The user name on the Microsoft SQL Server that hosts the configuration database.
    • Password: The password on the Microsoft SQL Server.
    • Database: Select the Verivo configuration database for the selected Microsoft SQL Server.

    • You entered the server name precisely.
    • You entered the database name precisely.
    • You entered your user name and password to the Verivo database precisely.
    • The configuration database is running.
    • You have permissions to access to the Verivo database. You can verify your access privileges by logging in to the Verivo database via your database provider.
