    I just upgraded to 4.8.5 and I used a sql login during upgrade that was not sa and does not have proper rights. Now I cannot launch wdm. How can I change the login that WDM uses for sql connection?

    Thanks

    The DB login is hardcoded in the registry. Can you access the DB via MS SQL Manager?

    Not that easy. The string is encrypted in the “ConnectString” variable. You need a special Wyse tool to encrypt your new password.
    The other “problem” is, that you are still using the user rapport in this case.

    by default it should use the rapport user indeed. Is your rapport user still available on you SQL server?
