SQL Server connection error: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection

This error occurs when you try to use a db login within a connection string on a server that has not been set up for mixed-mode (SQL Server and Windows security), ie when it is set to 'Windows only' authentication.

To fix this:

  1. Start Enterprise Manager,
  2. Right-click on the server and select Properties
  3. Select the Security tab.
  4. Select 'SQL Server and Windows' as the authentication mode.
  5. Click OK.
