If using the SQL Server MSDE version:

 
       
    • Open the Blackbaud Management Console and detach the database.
     
    • Open Windows Explore and search for the Client_###.mdf file and Client_###.ldf files.
     
    • Right-click on the *.mdf file and select Properties.
     
    • Unmark the Read Only checkbox.
     
    • Repeat the previous two steps for the *.ldf file.
     
    • Attach the database to the Blackbaud Management Console.


     

    If using SQL Server Enterprise or Standard Edition:

     
       
      • Go to Start, Run, type Services.msc, locate your SQL Server Service, right-click and choose Properties, go to the Log On tab. If a specific Windows account is being used, grant this Windows account Full Control permissions to the database folder and files.
       
      • Open SQL Server Enterprise Manager.
       
      • Right-click on the database file and select Properties.
       
      • Select the Options tab.
       
      • Unmark the Read Only checkbox.
