    I have a standalone application on my desktop.Whenever i am launching the application it is not starting.

    I am able to connect to the server but not the database.

    Can you suggest me a fix for the same. I am using a remote msSQL Database remotely .

    I have created a user with widows authentication in the Database and granted it sysadmin permissions also.

    What error message do you get? Can you share the connection string (without the password or other sensitive data, obviously).

    When you failed to connect to your SQL Server, the issue could be:
    • Network issue
    • SQL Server configuration issue
    • Firewall issue
    • Client driver issue
    • Application configuration issue
    • Authentication and logon issue
