I'm trying to log on my school SQL Server from home using a bat file which starts my MS SQL Server Management Studio that displays the Connect to Server dialog box. The Server type is Analysis Services and the Authentication is Windows Authentication.The problem is the user name displayed is incorrect but, the field is inactive so, I can't change it. I used the following run command rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr to add a new log on credential but the same user name was displayed when I ran the bat file to start MS SQL Server Management Studio again. I then went into the credential manager to verify the new user name was there and it was. How do I change the default user name for MS SQL Server 2008 in Windows7?

"Windows Authentication" means that the current logged in user is transmitted to MSSQL. If you could fake that, all security would be void. To be able to provide a different user than the Windows user, you need to
allow for SQL Authentication on MSSQL Server
create an SQL user in MSSQL
allow that user access to a particular or all databases
use that SQL User and password with the authentication

Qlemo, it is important to note that SQL Server Analysis Services do not accept SQL Authentication, only Windows Authentication.

Use the class attached to impersonate the user you want and then run your batch.

Good to know that.
Since this should run in a batch file, I think a "impersonate" using the  runas   command is more appropriate. It will ask for the password, then start Mgmt Studio.
runas /user:XYZ "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\VSShell\Common7\IDE\Ssms.exe"

I had to wind up reinstalling Windows 7 but, now when I try to reinstall Server 2008 it wants to install Windows. Do you know why and what to do?

I ran program compatibility and it returned that the server was made for windows xp sp2 so, I ran the program from the compatibility window but eventually still got the screen about custom installing windows.

I just tried installing Server 2008 again but, this time on my computer that has Windows XP SP3. The attachment is a print screen of what I was referring to during the installation process asking  which type of installation do I want and custom is the only option to select.
