Installed on Windows Server 2012 - Can't get past initial login

I’ve installed a new instance of GRA in our environment of:
Windows Server 2012 R2
SQL Server 2008 R2
I wasn’t able to have the setup screen come up when I tried running release 2.2.
I downloaded and tried with release 2.1.
I was able to connect and run the Setup screen using release 2.1. Looks like it finished okay. I was able to see that the database tables were created in SQL Server Management Studio.
When I try to log in for the first time as sysadmin, I see the following error:

Server Error in ‘/’ Application.
Login failed for user ‘bjonson’.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

I’m sorry that you’re having trouble getting the GRA going.

Have you tried logging in to the Control Room with the default login of sysadmin and the default password of: changeme05!

Also: did you try 2.2.1 or just 2.2? We have a new release (2.2.1) that is a full release of the most recent code available. You might have better luck with it.

I’m up and running! That must have been what I did (I thought I grabbed 2.2.1 but apparently not). Thanks much for your help!
