Hello,

I am trying to create a database when setting up Orchard. Using windows authentication does not seem to work correctly, is this supported when creating a database with Orchard when you are initially setting up the project?

You mean windows authentication to connect to the DB when setting up the project? That should work. What are your error log files saying (App_Data/Logs)?

That is refreshing to hear! What is the path where App_Data/logs exists?

The problem was I selected MySQL instead of SQL server (I am using SQL server) - the connection string works as expected
