I have SQL Server Express on my computer along with Visual Studio 2012. I have an associate whose computer I can log on to, open a SQL query, and Visual Studio opens and allows me to sign on and run the query. When I use my computer to do the same thing, I get a timeout error about the handshake and get a MS SQL error 258.

I was using this same program on my computer to start learning SQL. I used a different database, obviously, but had no problems. I do notice on the other computer there is some connection information. My computer won't allow me to even enter this.

Does anybody have an idea how I can get in?

Thank you.
