To avoid problems always make sure that you are using the latest version of 32 bit MS SQL Server client
Notes:

Using Sql Server user name and password is always better than using windows authentication. Consider the following scenario. Administrator Jonh installs the software everything is working fine. Developer Peter logs in, nothing is working, because developer has no access to repository database. Peter gets proper access and he can do his job. Over weekend another administrator want to check execution status he logs in, the same problem happens again.
