I have received a new laptop with sql server 2005 installed and configured. Unfortunately I do not know the sa password and my windows user does not have permission to access the localhost (its a dev laptop). The guy who set this up has unfortunately gone, so I'm a little stuck.
I now have admin access on the maching, so wondered is there a way that I can give myself permissions at windows level to get onto the DB? I don't want to go through the process of re-installing the application from scratch if I don't have to.
