Cannot switch to Mixed Authentication Mode for SQL Server

Posted on 2011-10-13
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I am running MS SQL Server 2000 on Windows XP machine. Currently Authentication mode is set to "Windows only". I use Enterprise Manager, go to Properties for SQL Server engine, then to Security tab. I have no problems clicking on "SQL Server and Windows" radio button there. Then I click the "OK" button. When I reopen the Properties window, security mode is still set to "Windows only". Restarting SQL Server doesn't make any difference. I hope there is some simple explanation to this stupid problem. Will appreciate any suggestions.

    Please click on "Request Attention" and get your question moved to the Microsoft SQL Server zones.  MySQL is a different database.
